When planning a celebration cake it's worth knowing how many portions your cakes will serve, We have put together this handy table to help guide you when deciding the sizes of your cakes.

These advised serving amounts are based on party-sized portions of 1.5 inch. x 2 inch, and smaller wedding-sized portions of approx 1 inch x 2 inch.

Cakes 3-6 inches high, baked in the same size cake tin would yield the same number of servings because they follow the same pattern of cutting. Cakes shorter than 3 inches would yield half the number of servings indicated for that pan. Please note, these number of servings are intended as a guide only - and it's always better to have more cake!
