Cake Portion Size & Price Guide

Although your cake is unique, the information below will help you calculate what size cake you’ll need for your guests and give you a rough idea of starting cost. Wedding cake is traditionally served in 2.5cm (1") square pieces for fruit cake,  5x1cm (2” x1/2") slices for sponge cake for an evening buffet, and slightly larger portions if your cake is to be served as dessert at the wedding breakfast. If you're not sure, please feel free to ask for advice.

Each cake is individually designed and costed. The following starting prices are only guidelines, and will vary depending on how much intricate detail is required.
