I’m getting married 12/30/12. We booked the big vendors right after we got engaged (in March 11), but now we’re starting to book the “other” vendors, and I have some cake questions.
As of now (and this could change considerably), we’re expecting about 125 people at our reception. How many people should my cake feed? We are not having a groom’s cake, but the reception will have dessert that is not cake.

your cake should feed the number of people you expect to have at the wedding–you don’t want to be short on cake. Tell your baker a range if you’re not 100% sure on the guest list yet–125-150 perhaps. You can have a smaller decorated cake and have the rest as sheet cake in the same flavor to save on cost if you want, but definitely have enough so that if everyone wants a slice they can get one.

Our number is also 125 and we will have a three layer cake that will feed 150 or more. You can never have too much cake In My Humble Opinion. 😉

We were expecting 225 and I ordered a cake for 200. I didn’t plan on saving the top tier, but there ended up being more than enough cake to do so. The reception venue always seems to cut the cake so small that you should have enough even if you under order.
