There will be about 150 people at our daughter's wedding reception. We are having wedding cake and cheesecake. How much would you recommend to have of each? Thank!

24 pounds commercial cheesecake serves about 100. I would do that, then 100 people worth of cake, this could be a wedding cake and a groom's cake (opportunity for chocolate) or a wedding cake and "kitchen cakes" (same flavor and icing as wedding cake, but 2 layer sheet cake, not decorated). Or, budget permitting just a 100 person wedding cake.

It adds up to more than 150 for 2 reasons- wedding cake portions are very small, and many people will take some of each. Cut the cheesecake relatively small.
