I thought she used the Wilton chart.

She had a chart that I printed off that included wedding, party, and family servings on the same page. This is just wedding servings.

Really? I thought Debi used the Wilton numbers and the straight cut method.

Like the rest, I'm pretty sure she just uses Wilton - here's a link to her blog about cake servings, the chart she uses, and her cutting method (so glad she shared - cutting cakes is so much easier now!).

Yes, I've seen that she uses the Wilton chart on her blog, but I swear, she had a chart that I printed out with wedding, party & family serving sizes. It's been some time ago. It was discussed in the forums and I printed it out. I don't know why I didn't save it on my computer. I was just looking @ it yesterday. I charge by party serving (1.5 x 2 x 4). I know that most charge by wedding, but I'm working my way up to that as I get better. I used to charge per family size. icon_eek.gif

This is Wilton's Party Chart which is are 1.5x2 slices.

Maybe you are thinking of someone else? Every time I have seen Indy talk about servings she has talked about the Wilton Wedding chart, even for kids or her family birthday parties, being the sizes she uses.

I may be, but I swear it was a chart with her name on the top. I've turned the house upside down looking for it. Maybe she'll see this post & let me know if I'm an idiot or not. In the mean time, I'll use the Wilton chart. It was really nice have it all on one page.

you're not going crazy, I'm pretty sure I know what you are talking about because I printed off one too. Unfortunately I have no idea where I got it from and I haven't seen it again so I can't help you with that. The wedding and party servings are the same as wilton and I think the family servings are 2x3" pieces.

Oh thank God I'm not going crazy!!
wedding=1 x 2 x 4
party=1.5 x 2 x 4
family=2 x 2 x 4

If I can't find my serving chart, I will use Wilton's if the serving sizes are 1.5 x 2 x 4.

I've pm'ed Indy, so maybe she'll have time to reply.

Do you have it saved in your computer?

On a side note, why does the Wilton chart have a 6 inch round yielding 12 wedding servings & 12 party servings? icon_confused.gif

No I just have the print out. Im not sure about the 6" on wiltons. Actually the serving sizes are a little different on this chart but it says it doesn't include the small rounded pieces.

Does it have indydebi's name on it?

What the heck is a "family" serving? icon_confused.gif I assume that's just one layer, which would be the same as a two-layer 1x2 inch serving.

A family serving as my definition is a Jethro Bodine 2 x 2 x 4 piece of cake.

I was picturing the Klumps sitting around stuffing huge hunks of cake into their mouths, but I was hoping I was wrong about that!

yes. It has her name at top and then there is a paragraph how the serving are determined by her cutting method

Okay. Just heard back from Indydebi. She says that the chart that I'm referring to was made by someone else. They mentioned her name to give her credit b/c they came up with the chart based on her cutting method. She uses the Wilton chart as previously stated.
All this time I thought she had made it. I would still like to find it!
