Wedding Cake Decorating & Portion / Serving Sizes
If you want to have a rows of rhinestone trim, crystal banding, ribbon or decoration going all the way around the bottom of each round tier of your wedding cake, you need to know the circumference (the length all the way around the outside of the circle, or in this case a round cake tier) in order to be sure that you have enough of your unique trim to go around your wedding cake tiers, use this simple calculation.
The circumference (the length of rhinestone trim to go around the cake tier) is easy to calculate - if your cake tier is a 10" circle, then just multiply 8 inches by 3.13, which would make a circumference of 25.12 inches. So, you would need a minimum of a 26" length of ribbon or trim to go all the way around the bottom of an 8 inch round tier (a few extra inches of trim is always safe!)
If your wedding cake has square tiers just measure the length of one side of the tier and multiply by 4. Very easy!!! It's always best to have a little extra of your rhinestone trim or crystal banding just in case.
Another example: If you have a 14 inch diameter round tier, the length around the bottom of the cake tier would be: 14" x 3.14 = 43.96" - therefore a 44" length of trimming will go all the way around the 14 inch round cake tier. It's always best to add a couple of inches of ribbon or trim because the cake icing and slight variations in the diameter of the cake may make it necessary for the ends of the ribbon to meet.
How big does your wedding cake need to be? It's an important question because you don't want to run out of your wedding cake! Below are the tier sizes and how many guest each cake tier size will serve.
The serving portion sizes below are approximately 2" by 1" size of wedding cake serving per guest.
