Size Matters

Every special occasion deserves an equally special cake, but just because you are not inviting the whole neighbourhood to your birthday doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a phenomenal cake. It’s your birthday right! So before heading out to a supermarket to buy a below par cake, why not order one of our new Mini or Small cakes. Whether you are simply celebrating the day with your nearest and dearest, having a romantic dinner for two or hosting a big shebang with all the bells and whistles, we have the perfect cake for you.

We’ve recently introduced two new size cakes to our classic cake range, our Mini {10 cm diameter} and Small {15 cm diameter}, but before you go searching for a ruler to try and wrap your head around the new sizes, we’ve already done all the work for you. We grabbed our ruler and scale and tested out our new cake sizes to give you all the information you would need.

The first question we are always asked is how many slices makes up a cake? Sounds like a riddle right? Well to a certain degree the number of slices a cake will yield is a matter of opinion (and appetite), but here is a general guideline to our new cake sizes.


Our Mini size is the perfect cake for an intimate affair, whether you are cooking a romantic dinner for two, surprising your little one with cake for breakfast on her birthday morning, or enjoying the cake as a small family, our Mini cake is the perfect sweet addition to your celebrations. It also makes for a delicious birthday present for those with a sweet tooth and comes beautifully packaged with our new open window branded mini cake box.

Our mini cake is approximately 10 cm in diameter and 14 cm in height, it weighs just over 1 kg and yields 4 to 6 portion sizes.


Having a braai with a few friends? Need a sweet ending to a dinner party? Birthday Celebrations with the family? Our Small Cake is perfect for those smaller get togethers. The dimensions of this cake is 15 cm in diameter and 17 cm in height, it weighs just over 2 kgs, and yields 8 to 10 portions.


The pièce de résistance, our regular cake size at a whopping 4 kgs might just be enough to feed a village! Approximately 20 cm in diameter and 17 cm in height, this beast would yield 16 to 18 portions. A favourite for large celebrations there is definitely enough cake here to go around.

Whether you are having a small celebration or the party of the year Tessa’s has you covered! Now go have your cake and eat it too!
