I'm terrible at math. How would you determine serving sizes for hexagon pans?

Wilton only sells 4 sizes of hex pans - 6" serves 10, 9" serves 20, 12" serves 34, and 15" serves 48.

cakedeco.com sells 8, 10, 12, 14 but doesn't give the serving size. icon_cry.gif

I am not sure! I am so sorry...but Earlene's Serving Chart says 45 servings for the 12"....just thought I'd put in my 2 cents!

Here's the wilton wedding cake chart that I use. The numbers differ slightly from the numbers above: http://www.wilton.com/wedding/cakeinfo/cakedata.cfm

Here's a 2nd link to the wilton site with wedding and party sizes, just for future reference (scroll to bottom of screen for links): http://www.wilton.com/cake/cakeprep/baking/times/index.cfm

Thanks ladies! I should've mentioned I was going by party servings. This is for a priest's anniversary and they're only giving out 100 tickets. So I was thinking 6" hex, 8" round, 10" hex, 12" round which I estimate at about 95 party servings. I think they're having food, so that should be plenty cake?

(assuming 4" tall cakes) first number is 1x2x4" and second is 2x2x3":
6 - 13/9
8 - 24/16
10 - 37/25
12 - 54/36
