How much food should I order for my guests?

The amount of food you order is completely up to you. How much you need will depend on the type of event you’re hosting, how many guests you’re expecting and how hungry they’ll be.

To help you decide how much you need, we give serving guidelines for all of our Food to Order items, which you’ll find on the individual item details page.

Here’s a rough guide to Food to Order portion sizes: • Birthday & personalised cakes: 10-56 portions • Wedding cakes: 12-200 portions Cake portion sizes vary depending on filling and cake size (for example, fruit cakes typically serve more people than sponge cakes). • Celebration cheese cakes: 52-100 portions • Party food & platters: 4-48 portions • Sandwiches & rolls: 4-36 portions • Fish & seafood: 2-8 portions • Quiches, pies & plates: 4-24 portions • Salads: 6-8 portions • Cold meats: 10-12 portions • Desserts: 4-48 portions • Party menus: Serves 12-20 people

Please note, you cannt order more than 20 of one single item in one transaction.
