Wedding cakes come in all sizes and shapes. The more traditional shapes are round and square. You want to choose a shape that not only compliments your wedding style, but also expresses who you are as a couple. Some other fun and popular shapes are hearts, ovals, and petals.

The size of the cake is based on the number of people attending the reception. The number of slices per size varies from baker to baker. It best to ask about serving amounts because bakers often have their own calculation method for certain sizes. Wedding cake size, shape and serving amounts are just a few of the many questions to ask your baker. Below is a general serving guide.
