The bad thing I think about it is that its a range...its hard to price based on a range! I use Earlene's chart and then just build my own tiers and add up the servings.

Sorry, I just saw that is didn't post very well. I just thought they seemed a bit low on the serving sizes. Do you have a link to Earlene's chart?

I understood what your chart was saying, but it looks to have a range that the cakes serve...but if you charge per serving, how can you know which serving sizes to use to charge the customer, the low one or the high one? That's why I use a chart that just has a number, period...and not a range.

Happy baking!

Waaaaaaaaay on the low side!!! I have a chart on my website for all the various shapes and sizes I sell. A 6 & 8in round from me will serve 30-36, and I always charge for the larger amount. The smaller is dessert size pieces, but my customers know they pay by the equivalent wedding size slice. Never had a problem yet.
