Cake Servings Guide


Have you ever asked yourself, “How many slices will this cake make?”

Well I made this handy info-graphic to show you exactly how many slices each size cake will give you, there are different sizes for Wedding Cakes and Party Cakes, labelled either size of the cake pictures!

In case you are confused by the graphic – a 6 inch Round Cake will give you 10 Wedding Size Slices and 8 Party Size Slices.

I hope you have found this useful, whether you are a Cake Baker yourself still getting to know sizes, or you don’t know what size cake to order for a wedding or party! 🙂

    This so impressive !!!! I’m actually thinking why wasn’t this done before !! So clear 

    Love the chart, makes it very simple to visualize the servings! I’m wondering though, how exactly do you cut the cake? The serving chart I’ve always used is from Wilton and it yields a different number of servings for some of your round tiers, but the same servings for the square??

    Hi Renee, thanks for your comment 🙂 I’ve just uploaded an image of the “cross sections” of the cake for you, here the link: , this is how it was worked out 🙂 I wish I’d added this as an extra part of the infographic now! Maybe I’ll add it on! Jem x

    Could you let me know how tall the cakes are. Are they 3 inch like a standard cake tin? Just asking because I’m doing 6 inch tiers.


  6. Lori

    This is great! But I’m with Ann, wondering how tall these cakes are…

  7. IcedJems

    Hi Ann, the cakes are standard 3 inch height yes 🙂 The servings guide would work fine for taller cakes too, you would just get a little more height to your slice! x

    Hi, I love your site and all the info, you provide. Very useful. I have 1 question…. Do you have a Price Chart, for cakes sizes prices? I dont know yet how much to charge for a round or square cake. Also, do you charge by size, by cut or peoples? How much you multiply, what you spend on making it and your work, toguether….etc… Please help… Thanks. Maritza.

    I totally love this posting. I am such a visual learner and this is something that I can use to better serve my clients (if I have permission to make a copy). Thanks for this post!

    this is a great guide!! more accurate than most i’ve seen!! Thanks for doing it! people always ask me how many a size will serve and i tell them what wilton shows but then tell them I’d take about a 1/3 off. unless a catering company is cutting the cake, more than likely the pieces wont be cut to get that many servings out of the cake! Better to have cake left over than not enough is what I tell them!

    I’m glad I found this on Pinterest. Its hard to help people visualize tier cakes. This will help a lot.

    I’m looking at the cross-section diagram, and there’s a slightly easier way than trying to divide a round cake into a grid: think bullseye. Cut a ring 2″ in from the edge, cut 2″ wide slices from that ring, when that’s gone then cut another ring 2″ in. That’s how they taught me in culinary school. Hope this helps!
