How many servings will you get from a double layered 12" x 18" x 2" 1/2 sheet cake? I'm only finding information about single layers, but wondered if you just double the number...or if it's more because the actual pieces are cut smaller. I'm putting 2 layer numbers on top (7 & 5 in number pans) and was also trying to figure out the servings of those (the plastic number pans). Any insight would be really appreciated!

It depends on how large you want the servings. wedding servings are typically smaller 1x2 4" high. that would give you about 100 servings.

party sizes are sometimes bigger, 2x2 gives you about 50 servings.

Thank you JoAnn! That's what I came up with too, but I kept second guessing myself! This will be more along the lines of wedding servings. Large anniversary party!

I appreciate your help!

Here is a copy of the chart I use, it has sheet cakes at the bottom...

I use Indydebi's chart as a guide for the sheet cakes too. I use them to make carved cakes, so it's a little different, but her servings are true.

I love the chart! Thanks for sharing it! I really like the way it's laid out and really helpful. I was figuring some sizes on cakes yesterday and I was happy that my serving numbers matched what yours were. I can still do a little math! icon_lol.gif
