I had a lady call me asking about how many servings she would get out of a wedding cake using and 8in, 10in and 12in rounds.
For example I told her a 12" round would give her 56 servings using "industry standard" size slices of 1x2x4in. She said another place told her she would only get 35-40 servings out of the same size cake using "industry standard" slices.
Now going by Wilton books for a 12" round wedding slices you would get 56 servings and party size you would get 40 servings
How do you figure how many servings out of a cake? I'm confused...
You use the Wilton wedding cake charts.
What I did was someone on here has posted pics of pans or boards showing slices, or cuts of cakes, then it shows example:
6" cake board with slices and how many it serves...and so on to show the customer what a 1 1/2" slice is and a 2"...etc...then someone also gave me a link to calculating pan sizes.
you just check mark what pans your making it in example:
6"10" and 12" then click next and it tells you how many slices you will get.
That is an awsome link, THANK YOU
