I just purchased 11" round pans today. Does anyone know how many wedding servings (1"x2"x4") I'll be able to get from this pan? I've looked on line with no luck for these odd sizes. Thought I'd ask before I have to take out the pencil and draw on the bottom of my new pan. (I use 38 servings for the 10" and 56 servings for the 12" so I know it's somewhere in the middle!) TIA!

I use odd sized pans a lot and quote an 11in round pan as being 48 wedding servings.

Number of servings = volume of cake divided by volume of serving -----> 379.94 / 8 = 47.4925
Round down partial serving, so 47 servings

How I got the numbers above:

Volume of cake:
{note: Radius = diameter divided by 2 ------> 11/2=5.5}
Volume = (radius squared) times pi times height -------> (5.5 x 5.5) x 3.14 x 4 = 379.94

Volume of serving:
Volume = length times width times height --------> 1 x 2 x 4 = 8

I'd go with what prterrell has come up with. JanH has been established as our librarian and prterrell is our math guru!

(And I go by the wilton chart that a 10" round serves 38, so an 11" round would be somewhat more than that.)
