Hi everyone, I need a little help. I've only been caking for about a year. I know I've seen postings on this before with different reponses. I'm doing my first bridal shower cake in August. It is a full sheet cake w/buttercream frosting, simple decorations. What is the size of a full sheet, I've seen 16 x 24 and 16 x 22. How many servings and serving size and what would you charge?

The term 'full sheet' comes from the size of commercial bakery pans which are 18x24 or 18x26. A single layer 18x24 serves 108, based on 2x2x2" pieces.

Logically, then, a half sheet is the 18x24 cut in half, which gives you two 12x18's. Single layer serves 54.
