Ask Kevin

Hi Kevin,

I’m starting to wrap up all the planning details for my May wedding, but I am struggling with the size cake I will need. I am still waiting to hear back from a good amount of people, but it’s looking like we will have about 75-100 people. Do you have any advice on what size cake I need?

Hi Anna!

Thanks for writing in. This is a topic that many people struggle with, so I am happy to help! To be honest, cake is always tricky because most people won’t eat their slice, but you still need to order as if everyone will. With that being said, I always keep this inforgraphic on hand because it is spot on when it comes to servings for your guest count. Hopefully this helps!
