We know there's a lot of things to decide when ordering a celebration cake.🎂 No matter how big or small it is, you want it to be perfect. 👌 So here at Create A Cake, we've pulled together a handy guide which will hopefully give you some tips and guidance in answering any important questions you may have.📝
HOW MANY SERVINGS WILL MY CAKE FEED?
First things first, 'What size cake do I need?' we hear you ask!
Cake sizes and servings depend entirely on;
1. The shape of your cake and
2. Who is cutting the cake! (Technically if you don't cut up a cake and just eat the whole thing with a fork, you only had one slice right?!🤣)
For the purpose of our handy cake servings chart and cake size guide, we've based our cake slice on the industry benchmark cake size portions. 🍰 With celebration/party portions measuring 1.5 inch x 2 inch 🎉 and wedding cake slices measuring 1 inch x 2 inch in size. 💒
⚠️ Please remember this is only intended as a guide to help you determine how many servings you’ll get from your cake. We cannot be held responsible for shortfalls in portions.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAKE TIERS & LAYERS?
You've hopefully now mastered cake sizes and different cake servings, next thing to consider is if you would like a single tier or multiple tiered cake? People often get tiers and layers confused when It comes cake.😕
Layered Cakes - A layered cake is made up of multiple stacked cake sponges that are all the exact same size. They are held together with a layer of frosting or filling.👍
Tiered Cakes - A tiered cake on the other hand is made up of multiple layered cakes all of different sizes and stacked on top of each other. 🙌 Tiered cakes are more traditional for weddings, however lately have become more common for other celebrations too. Tiered cakes can create height, drama and become more of a focal point for a party.🥳
HOW MANY CAKE LAYERS SHOULD I HAVE?
We can still add height to a single, one tier cake by introducing more layers.
Each layer of our sponge at Create A Cake is measured at roughly 1.75 inches in depth. So the more layers you choose to have, the bigger the depth of your cake. Our drip cake designs are a prime example of a one tier cake that can be adjusted to suit the needs of the customer. The more layers, the bigger the height, the longer drip we can create!
So now you know what your want your cake to look like and the size of it, do you know what flavour your want your cake to be? 😋
As far as cake flavours and filling combinations go, we're a fan of all of them! ( I mean it's cake...you can't go wrong whatever the flavour 😊)
Here's a list of the cake flavours we offer at Create A Cake:
