How many servings can you get from a 10" square two layer? I don't have this pan yet and I am thinking of buying one.

I know there is a Wilton serving guide, but I feel like they underestimate servings on party cakes. Their book says 24 servings, and I was hoping for 30.

how big of servings?

1x2x4 (1widex2longx4high)

then it's
10 / 1 = 10
10 / 2 = 5
5 x 10 = 50 wedding size servings

----
too small?

1.5 x 2 x 4

then it's
10 / 1.5 = 6 (rounded off)
10 / 2 = 5
5 x 6 = 30 servings

bigger?

2x2x4

then it's

10/2 = 5
10/2 = 5
5 x 5 = 25.

simple math.

take sides and divide by size of serving.
multiply results for total servings.

For a 10" square I get 40 servings that are 1 x 2.5 (and 4" high). And I don't distinguish between "wedding" size or "party" size.
I find this size to be just the right amount of cake, personally.

One side of the cake would be divided into rows that are fourths and on each of those rows, cut 1" slivers. (10X4=40)
