How to choose the right crepe cake size for the party?

When we used to visit Nana, the first thing she always asked was," How many of you are coming?" On the day we visit, she will prepare looooots of food on the table and make sure everyone of us are full before we leave. Nana always had the magic power to make the exactly right amount of food for us. But we know it may be tricky to choose the right crepe cake size, that's why we created this guide to help!

Crepe Cakes = Layers of Joy

Nana's Crepe Cakes are constructed with 15-20 layers of crepes and cake filling each, composing a three to four inches tall cake for all sizes, whereas normal chiffon cakes are around half the height (around two inches). Therefore, for the same size, the mille crepe cakes tend to serve slightly bigger party.

How big is the party?

This is the most essential question that should be considered when picking the right cake size. Not just the number of guests that matters, but also their preference on servings of desserts. 

  • How many guests will be joining? or more importantly, how many guests will be staying for the cake?
  • Do your guests mostly love desserts?
  • Will it be mostly adults or kids?
  • Do any guests have any dietary restrictions that may affect them joining the cake session?

Other than the guest, the content of the party is another significant factor that may impact your decision.

  • Other than the crepe cake, will there be other food or desserts?
  • When will the cake be served in the rundown? As the start of the party, free flow or at the end of the party?
  • Is there any other desserts along with the crepe cake?
