For my purposes:single layer cake...............two layer cake
1/4 sheet = 9x13 = 24 (2x2) servings........48 (1x2x4) servings
1/2 sheet = 12x18 = 54 (2x2) servings......108 (1x2x4) servings
Full sheet = 18x14 = 108 (2x2) servings....216 (1x2x4)servings

With square or rectangle cakes, it's easy to just do the math to figure your servings.....

Single layer:
11x15 cake: 2x2" servings = cut columns/rows of 5x7 = 35 servings
11x15 cake: 2x3" servings = cut columns/rows of 5x5 = 25 servings

12x18 cake: 2x2" servings = cut columns/rows of 6x9 = 54 servings
12x18 cake: 2x3" servings = cut columns/rows of 6x6 = 36 servings

14x22 cake: 2x2" servings = cut columns/rows of 7x11= 77 servings
14x22 cake: 2x3" servings = cut columns/rows of 7x 7 = 49 servings

These are based on a single layer cake. If you bake two layers, then you will probably cut the pieces into 1x2" pieces to yield different serving amounts.

Double layer (pieces are 4ï¿½ tall ï¿½ same as a wedding cake):
11x15 cake: 1x2ï¿½ pieces = cut columns/rows of approx 10 x 7 = 70 servings
12x18 cake: 1x2ï¿½ pieces = cut columns/rows of approx 12x 9 = 108 servings

Just do the math.....!

Not sure where I got this...probably IndyDeb!

There are no dumb questions if you don't know the answer - what seems dumb to some is a revelation to others. That's the beauty of CC you get access to input and expertise from world class decorators right down to the mum who just wants to make her kid a nice cake for his birthday.
