Wedding Dessert
I am making a wedding cake and dessert to serve everyone for a friend. I am doing mini strawberries and cream trifles that will be served in clear plastic cups. I am wondering how many recipes of pound cake I will need to make to fill and serve 120 cups. The recipe I am using makes two 8 inch cake pans (then I just cube the cake and layer it in the cups).

It would be helpful if you could suggest how many strawberries to get, too.

Laura how many cups does your recipe make? I usually plan on 8 servings per standard loaf cake, but you will easily get 10 when cubing into cups.

1 quart of strawberries makes 8-10 shortcakes. You will probably get a dozen in these small cups.

If this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation, a nickel or dime per guest, to support this site. Thank you.
