Okay, I have the wilton serving chart.... but it doesn't have odd size square servings. Does anyone know how many servings a 9" square serves? 2inch pans?

I actually find this chart to be great - I don't even use the Wilton chart for servings anymore icon_biggrin.gif HTH

I do the math to get sizes for the odd size ones. There are a total of 40 servings that are 8cubic inches in a 9"x9"x4" square cake.

(although I usually tell people it serves 30-40, not everyone is going to cut that last row 1" wide and then ever 2" to get the proper 8 cubic inch piece - if your cutting it then it's not as big of a deal)

Thanks... that's what I came up with by looking at the servings on a 10 vs an 8. So I'm going with a 12, 9, and 6 to make this cake. Thanks for the input!

Squares and rectangles are the easiest to calculate. Below assumes a 1x2x4 serving size

9x9 = 81 (surface area of pan)

1x2 = 2 (surface area of piec of cake)

81/2 = 40.5

So, a 9" square serves 40
