Hi all,

Forgive me if there is a thread asking this question already, but I couldn't find it. I use the standard Wilton wedding servings chart, but it only has even numbered pans. I want to offer odd size cakes too 5", 7", etc., but don't know how many servings they yeild, and want them to be in line with my even pan servings.

Anybody know?

Round cake data.
Assumes all cakes are 4" high.
Serving size = 1"x2"x4"
Cups of batter is per 2" deep pan.
Circumference (Circum.), Top Area TA), Volume (Vol.), and Total Surface Area (TSA) are all measured in inches.

Diameter, # servings, cups of batter, Circum., TA, Vol., TSA
4, 6, 1, 13, 12.56, 50.24, 62.8
5, 10, 1.5, 16, 19.625, 78.5, 82.425
6, 12, 2, 19, 28.26, 113.04, 103.62
7, 16, 2.5, 23, 38.47, 153.88, 126.38
8, 24, 3, 25, 50.24, 200.96, 150.72
9, 30, 5.33, 29, 63.59, 254.36, 176.62
10, 38, 6, 32, 78.5, 314, 204.1
11, 45, 7, 35, 94.985, 379.94, 233.145
12, 55, 7.5, 38, 113.04, 452.16, 263.76
13, 65, 8.75, 41, 132.665, 530.66, 295.945
14, 75, 10  , 45, 153.86, 615.44, 329.7
15, 85, 12.5, 42, 176.625, 706.50, 365.025
16, 100, 15, 51, 200.96, 803.84, 401.92
18, 125, 22, 57, 254.34, 1017.36, 480.42
20, 150, 27, 63, 314, 1256, 565.2

To calculate servings of any cake, divide the volume of the cake by the volume of a serving (standard 1"x2"x4" serving has a volume of 8 cubic inches).
HTH!
