Portion Guide

The size of your cake will be determined by the number of guests you wish to serve, and what size portions you intend on serving. Desert size pieces or coffee size pieces. If you are having dessert as part of your menu, coffee size portions will be sufficient. Alternatively, my cakes can be served as dessert, in which case you'll need dessert size portions.

The number of portions given above, is only intended as a guide and based on the following dimensions.

 

Coffee size cake portions are 1" x 1" x height of the cake

  Dessert size cake portions are 1" x 2" x height of the cake

 

However, actual quantities may vary, depending on the person cutting up your cake. If the cake is going to be cut by a professional caterer, he/she will more than likely get more serves out of the cakes than I have listed above.
