I feel so stupid. but I don't do sheet cakes. Well I got a call to day from the school district asking me to do some sheet cakes for tomorrow. They needed 4 sheet cakes to serve around 36ppl each. So I looked up the serving chard in my Wilton book and it shows that a 9x13 serves 36. So I baked up 4 9x13 sheet cakes. Well I just cake across a few different serving guides that shows they only serve 18-20 people. Which one is right? Because if I'm really off by that much I need to get up at the butt crack of dawn and make some more cakes. Any Help???
Most people here agree that 9x13 (aka quarter sheet) serves 24 (2x2x2) pieces. That's industry standard.
For a single layer 9x13 sheet, I go with about 24 2x2x2 servings.
For a 2 layer 9x13 sheet, I figure about 48 1x2x4 bservings.
crap.... butt crack of dawn it is then. Thank you!
you really need to have made 11x15 cakes which have 35 servings in them. 9x13 dependin on how tall you made them have 16-24 at 2" thick or 32-48 servings at 4" thick. But i find that schools rarely cut a 2x2 serving, but thats not really your problem.
Sorry.........I think crack of dawn is calling.
I always use a serving size of 2x2 for single layer sheet cakes, and 1x2 for double layer and up.
I think you may have looked at the wilton chart for a 2 layer 9x13 cake!
Hello, so what do you charge for sheet cakes, especially that 11x15 cake ?
