Ok I need a chart for serving sizes for these rectangle cakes two layers and the half moon 18' two layer. All my Wilton books show the round , squares and heart and hex. I can't find the rectangles. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks to any and all !!!!!!!

1x2x4 (double layer)

12 / 1 = 12
18 / 2 = 9
9 x 12 = 108

11 / 1 = 11
15 / 2 = 7.5 (round down to 7)
11 x 7 = 77 with some small half size slices left over (perfect for the little kids)

---

for rectangles and squares its just simple math (ok..math for me was never simple even when I got to use fingers and toes! icon_rolleyes.gif)

----

as for 18 in half round -- works much the same way. but drawing it out helps. lighter shading = full size servings. note the number of partial servings.

EDITED to add: -- ok... missed one serving -- the very top of the round -- so that's 51 full and the rest partial servings.
