a round 10 inch, two layer cake is about 28 servings. A round 14 inch two layer cake is about 63 servings. this is a suggested serving chart along with batter amounts, baking temp and time and icing amounts:

Round Pans:
Pan Servings Batter Baking Temp. Baking Time Icing
6" 12 2 cups 350° 25 - 30 3 cups
7" 16 2 1/2 c. 350° F 30 - 35 3 1/2 c
8" 20 3 cups 350° F 30 - 35 4 c
9" 24 5 1/2 c 350° F 30 - 35 4 1/2 c
10" 28 6 c 350° F 35 - 40 5 c
12" 40 7 1/2 c 350° F 35 - 40 6 c
14" 63 10 c 325° F 50 - 55 7 1/2 c

Here is a link to the complete chart for pan sizes and servings:

http://cakecentral.com/articles/74/cake-baking-cutting-serving-guide-2-in-deep-pans

This is based on 1x2x4in size slices or as IndyDebi says, a piece of cake the size of folded peanut butter sandwich.

Trish's info is pretty good but I suggest lowering the baking temp to 300 degrees F. & bake for a slightly longer time.
There are several serving time charts on the internet so the #s are not firm. One might get more than what she said.
