I am creating a 4 tiered cake using my 2" pans : 12, 10, 8, and 6 inch squares. How many servings will I get total? I use Earlene's chart, but sometimes those #'s look off... same wtih Wilton.
Any help?? Thanks!!
Wilton (the industry standard) says 172. Earlenes is more generous, so u get fewer servings - so remember per serving charge must be higher!
What do you mean they look off? Wiltons can look small, but if you just had a meal, its plenty. Look at indydebis blog I think she shows visuals of the cake slice and also a good cutting guide.
the good news about using square pans is that its easy to do the math to figure the number of servings.
A serving is 1x2x4" (industry standard and PLENTY big for a wedding dessert).
A 6" cake will be cut in 6 rows (1" wide) by 3 rows (2" wide). 6x2 = 18 servings.
8" = 8 rows by 4 columns = 32 servings
10" = 10 rows by 5 columns = 50 servings
12" = 12 rows by 6 columns = 72 servings
18+32+50+72 = 172 servings
thanks for the help, I thought so on the servings, but I was getting so overwhelmed! I appreciate your help!!
