I have a 3 1/2 circle pan & was wondering how many 1 x 2 servings would I get?

Now don't you wish you'd paid more attention in Geometry class? Me, too, because I can't remember how to figure that out, either!

I would guess-timate about 5. I figure a 6" is 10 servings (I know Wilton says 12, but I think 10), so about half that size would be 5.

yep, kicking myself for daydreaming during geometry class! I figured I would just 1/2 the number of servings from a 6" too....but thought I'd ask (there has to be someone who did pay attention during class!!)

The area (2 dimensional) of a cake with a 3.5 inch diameter is 9.62 sq. inches. If you wanted the pieces to be 2 sq inches, the exact answer is 9.62 / 2 = 4.8 servings. Your guestimations were almost right on!
