Hi folks,

I'm on my cellphone, and cannot access the wilton chart...real quickly, what size rounds should yield 50 servings, using only two tiers? (not saving top tier)

I know, I should know this

6" and 10" rounds will give you 50 servings - HTH

8 x 12 rounds = 56 servings

Per the wilton wedding serving chart (which is what I go by), which is 1x2x4 (8 cubic inches - industry standard serving):

6 = 12 servings
8 = 24 servings
10 = 38 servings
12 = 56 servings

So a 6/10 = 50 servings on the nose. If they think they might cut them bigger, they need to order a bigger cake......

8/10 = 62 servings
8/12 = 80 servings

Here is a pic of a 1x2x4 piece of cake .... about the size, or a little bigger than a folded over peanut butter sandwich:

See the link in my signature on how to cut a cake to achieve these servings.

Oops! Indydebi is right...I have way to many servings. I was going by this http://www.wilton.com/cakes/tiered-cakes/serving-amounts-all.cfm not realizing that didn't include the top tier.

Thanks guys on the feedback (on my regular laptop now, MUCH easier!). I was at work where someone asked me about a cake....guess I need to start memorizing cake servings!

Good news is I got the booking for Friday!

...and Indy, I am definately going to be making these "cake servings" to show clients!
