Does anyone have a serving chart for various sizes of sheet cakes?

Need it for a wedding.

My computer got a virus and I lost alllllll of my stuff. *sigh*

Word to all... back up back up everything.

TIA

You can figure it out if you take the time to do the math.

I always tell people a half sheet (12x1 is 48 pieces. They are 2" x 2". A third sheet is 36, and a quarter sheet is 24. For party cakes like the shaped cakes, I measure 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" square. Then I tell people the quarter sheet will feed between 20-24. Then I have my bases covered if a hungry dad decides to carve the cake.

I have found that each person measures differently, so a lot of times, it's personal preference. Some like a bigger piece, some smaller. Mine are typically bigger than Wilton's cutting chart. But my customers tell me they like the size of my pieces. As a rule, 2" square for weddings, grads, and anniversaries, and 2 1/4" square for other parties.
