We are thinking of doing a small 1 or 2 tier cutting cake (and for pictures) with sheet cakes in the back for the guests. The bakery I am looking at can do the same gourmet flavors and fillings in the sheet cake, which I am very happy about. We are thinking of doing Vanilla w/ filling, Chocolate w/ filling, and 2 gourmets with filling. We are estimating between 120-140 guests.
How much of each sheet cake do I order? 1/4 sheet will feed 45...I don't want to order WAY to much cake.
Is 4 flavors too many? Should we stick with 2 basic 1 gourmet?
I want the guests to have options but I don't want to get a cake that feeds 45 and only 2 people eat that flavor, but I also don't want to get a cake that feeds 45 and 60 people want that flavor....Anyone have experience in doing this? What did you do? How much did you order?
EDIT: Servings are according to bakery stated servings.
