Can't say I am familiar with those terms.

My pricing is based on the wilton wedding chart. They are WELCOME to cut it any size they want, but they are PAYING for the number of servings it's designed to serve.

Insert KFC analogy here. http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-597044-kfc.html (and there's a typo in the first post in the numbers, which I correct later in the thread....)

i found that the terms "coffee/finger and dessert servings" are used more on the uk/australian cake boards

it seems as if the dessert is similar to our standard size. the coffee is 1/2 of the dessert so a 6" square would be 18 dessert servings or 36 coffee.

ETA: this is what i gather from reading other boards icon_smile.gif
