We're getting our cake from an amazing bakery and I just got their quote. I'm about to call them for more details, but I wanted some input first.
If the cake comes from a bakery that usually has long lines because their cake is that good, and it's the only dessert at our reception, and we have a lot of guests with big appetites, what size pieces should we serve? Wedding slices are usually 1*2, whereas party slices are usually 2*2.
Also, how big a deal is it to serve a slightly larger slice of 2-layer sheet cake from the same bakery (so same quality and flavor) along with the smaller slices of the 3-layer round cakes? I figure an inch longer (so 2*2 if we're serving 1*2 or 2*3 if we're serving 2*2) will approximately make up the volume of dessert, but the proportion of cake to icing and filling might be different, and I'm not sure it would actually save me money with this particular bakery.
