Creating deliciously beautiful cakes

Cake Portion Guide

The size of your cake will be determined by the number of guests you wish to serve, and what size portions you intend on serving. If you are already having dessert as part of your menu, finger or coffee size portions will be sufficient, and our cakes will taste delicious, with tea or coffee.

Alternatively, our cakes can be served as dessert and will go well with fresh cream, ice cream, chocolate fudge sauce or fresh berries; in which case you'll need dessert size portions.

To help you determine which size cake you'll need, please refer to the table below:

Cake Cutting Tip: Ganache tends to stick to the knife when cutting your cake, making it difficult to get nice clean slices. To achieve clean cuts (and maximum number of serves), use a sharp (not serrated) knife, dipped in hot water and wiped dry before each cut!
