What Is The Differeance between Coffee or Dessert Portions?

Do you know that in Australia and UK they offer two different portion sizes in cake? A small amount also called a coffee portion (1” x 1”). Half the size of a regular piece of cake, Basically the same size as a petit four! If you are having a three-course sit down dinner with wine and cocktails, and you also have a huge dessert table, chances are you are only going to need coffee portions for your guests.

If you are having a buffet-style dinner and want your guests to have a more substantial piece of cake, then you would opt for a dessert-sized portion (1”x 2”). The below guide should give you a rough estimate of what you will need, of course carrying from baker to baker by a bit. Regardless of what size portion you decide on, every person should be offered cake. This is a great guide if you plan on make a  cake for several guest. Below is an approximation guide put out by the” Cake Decorators Association Of Western Australia Inc.”

    I bet this cake tastes as delicious as it looks! The vibrant colors would go so well with wedding themes, I also think personalizing cigars adds a nice and unique touch!

    Sort of true but it’s a 1x1x height so it’s all the cake pieces on the first plate, not just one! We aren’t that tight in the UK!
