Wedding Cake Size
Whippt Kitchen single tier wedding cakes are a standard 3 layers, standing approximately 5 inches high. Custom tier heights are welcome and range from: short - approx 3" H, extra tall - approx 7" H, double barrel - approx 10" H.
Will your cake be served as:
- the main dessert course for your guests?
- later in the evening, following a separate dessert course with dinner?
This is important to help us advise you on the appropriate sized cake for your servings needs. If you're planning to the serve the cake later in the evening, following a separate dessert course with dinner, we recommend accounting for around half of your guests enjoying a slice.
Our wedding cake servings are based on 1x1x5" slices. An approximate servings is provided with every quote. Please note, each venue/caterer has a different style of slicing wedding cake. It is important to also account for some waste as pieces cut around the dowel or at the edge of the cake are often not used.
Please refer to our cake flavour menu here. Tiered wedding cake pricing starts with one flavour for all tiers, however multiple cake flavours are welcome at +$30ea.
