The wilton serving guide is the standard, though there are others.

A standard serving size is 1x2x4 inches or 2x2x2 inches = 8 cubic inches of cake.

i just want to mention that these serving sizes are what the wilton wedding chart is based off of. Well the 1x2x4 servings since they figure the wedding cakes to be 4" tall.

Earlene also has this available: http://www.earlenescakes.com/ckserchart.htm

but its much bigger servings than the Wilton (so more cake, same price). Wilton is pretty much the norm and I go with that.

Either copy the photos from the blog onto a Word document and print those ..... or my website is still up (not sure for how much longer) and that page is easily printable: http://cateritsimple.com/id10.html
