Here’s what you need to consider…
When it comes to wedding cake, we are definitely in the camp that it’s a wedding tradition to firmly uphold. After all, a party without a cake is just a meeting and the same is true of weddings so I’ve heard 😉
If you’ve never fed cake to hundreds of people before, it can be really confusing trying to work out exactly how much you need to feed your guests. Whether you’re ordering a cake from the supermarket, or having one made for you by a fabulous cake maker, no one wants to have too much or even worse, too little!
So we’ve put together this guide to help you work out just how much cake you need to order, what kind of icing you’d like to chose from and some ideas as to how your cake could look. But remember, whether it’s bright and bold, or soft and pastel, covered in icing or stripped back to show off the squishy sponge, the most important thing is that it tastes delicious!
