I have been asked to make a cross cake to serve 40 people and i'm not sure how to figure servings. I plan on carving mine from a 10 x 14 pan. Any idea how many servings that would be? Also, any ideas if I needed more servings and don't want to put it on a half sheet cake? I appreciate any feedback.

if you use the no loss template at this link:

a 10x14 pan would give you 35 2x2 servings for a one layer sheet.

if you make it a double layer (two sheets stacked just like in a regular tier cake) then you'd have 70 servings.

if you use a slightly larger pan, say an 11x18 then you'd get 45 2x2 servings with just a thin sliver left over.
