Most confectioners are advised to lay about 150 grams of cake for each guest, but there are aspects that should also be taken into account. If the cream or cakes are light and airy, then this rate is enough, but when the dessert is impregnated with liqueur, and from above is generously poured with chocolate glaze and mastic, then for each guest it is necessary to allocate up to 250 grams.

For example, young women order an easy wedding dessert for 50 guests, then the weight is calculated as follows: 0.15×50 = 7.5 kg. Do not worry that this dessert is not enough, because there are always people who do not like sweets or simply refuse their portion.
