35 based on 2x2x2" servings.

20 - 35 servings depending on how they're cut.

35 is for 2X2" servings, which is pretty small for my family! icon_lol.gif
20 is for honkin' big 2X4" pieces

2x2 servings would only be about 35 regardless of hight.
11 divided by 2 is 5.5
15 divided by 2 is 7.5

5.5 x 7.5 is 41.25 but the safer math is 5 x 7 giving you 35 servings

if you go to my website and go to the price list i have all cake servings based on how big you cut the cake (3 choices for wedding slice that are 4 inches tall and 3 choices for party cakes as well)

that way if you cut them 2x2, 2x3, or 3x3 you know how many servings you will get. I even made little styrofoam "cake slices" so people could see how big or tall a piece would be...im a visual person myself.

Thanks everyone, It for a baby shower and it needs to feed 30, so do you think I should go with a 12x18 to make sure every one gets cake.
