Help! I want to know about how many serving I should get from a
14 x 14 square pan. I have a baby shower on Sunday. I baked the square cake and the wilton carriage pan to go on top of the 14 x 14 square cake. The party is for 80 people. I'm just worry that I might be short on servings.

HELP!

at 1x2 inch servings.....you'll get 14x7= 98 servings from 14x14 cake alone.

go to 2x2 then down to 49 servings from 14x14.

at 1.5x2 get 63 servings

then add to those the servings from the carriage pan which should be at least 15 or so.

so....63 (1.5x2) + 15 (carriage) = 78....close enough to 80 -- after all there's bound to at least 2 (and probably more) "I'm on a diet" attendees!

Doug,
Thank you so much for your quick reply. Perfect explanation. Well, maybe I will bake a smaller cake just to keep in the back kitchen, just to be safe.

When I have had a cake order that is that close in servings I make an extra one that is diabetic. That way those who are diabetic or on diets can have a piece as well.

Would you mind sharing your Diabetic recipe? I find it difficult to find a good sugar free cake and frosting. Thanks!

I have a similar issue coming up and what I've decided to do is make a batch or 2 of cupcakes, in another flavor.
