We at The House of Cakes bake in many different sizes and shapes. The smallest is the cupcake and the largest is about 2 meters.

Our smallest cake - the cupcake, serve one (minimum order is 12 pcs) and while in general guide a 16 inch cake serve 45 - but a

sensible person might serve it to about 100 people.

HOW BIG IS A PIECE OF CAKE?

IT DEPENDS ON HOW YOU SLICE IT. EVERYONE SEEMS TO HAVE A DIFFERENT ANSWER, SO TAKE A LOOK TO SEE WHAT

I RECOMMEND. THE CHART BELOW SHOWS DIFFERENT WAYS OF SLICING THE CAKE SIZES I OFFER - PARTY STYLE &

EVENT STYLE. AT HOME, WE TEND TO CUT THE MORE GENEROUS PARTY STYLE SLICES (APPROXIMATELY 1.5" X 2").

AT EVENTS, THE CATERERS WILL USUALLY CUT THE MORE MODERATE EVENT STYLE SLICES (APPROXIMATELY 1" X 2"). 

Keep your event & your guests in mind. Are they more likely to just want a bite or two? Are they going to want seconds? Will there

be other desserts available? Are leftovers really a bad thing?
