At a recent cake tasting, a client told me that he found my blog post discussing buttercream and fondant, but he had a hard time following because he wasn't sure what I was talking about. "What is buttercream?" he asked. "And what is fondant?"
The first question a couple asks at their tasting often centers around how much cake they need. To answer this question, I'll point out a few things to consider when determining the number of servings to order. I'll share my own serving guidelines below for reference, but I'll also explain why you may receive slightly different answers from different bakers.
