I am making a wedding cake at the end of July. The cake needs to beable to feed 200-225. They want a 4 tiered cake. What sizes would you suggest? Also I have the Wilton square pans but am looking into purchasing a new square cake pan set. Could you let me know what you prefer. I knew their was a discussion on which pans were better Fat Daddios or Magic Line, but cannot seem to find it. I always have a difficult time with the squares trying to figure out sizes, not sure if I should go with even or odd sizes. Most of my cakes that are round usually are 16,12,9,6. Thanks in advance!
I really like my Magic Line cake pans, I have all sizes in round and square. I just wished they had Magic Line squares in 11,13, and 15. I just recently purchased Fat Daddio's in those sizes but have not used them yet.
Saving the Top:
6" square 0
9" square 40
12" square 72
15" square 112
Total Servings 224
Go to the Wilton Web site. www.wilton.com there is alot of information there, including servings per pan shape & size. Also how many cups of batter per pan & cups of icing needed to ice & decorate.
Thanks for the help. I already have the Wilton chart, but they dont have odd sizes on there in the square pans.
I just made a square wedding cake with the Fat Daddio's. They're great! Mine was 7, 9,11 &13. Which only serves 150. But the pan's work great. I know a lot of people really only use magic line, but I've got both and they both work fine.
Squares are really easy to calculate the serving size.
For a 1x2x4 wedding serving slice, just take the area (width x length) and divide by 2.
15 x 15 = 225
225/2 = 112.5, I round it down to 112 servings
