Can anyone help me with how many servings go with each pan? I am pretty new to cake decorating and I am not sure how many people a 9x13 will feed, or a 10 in square ect. I would appreciate any guidance.

Not sure if you are based in the uk but there is a really good book by kathy Moore called cakes from concept to creation that covers everything like this it says a 10" square would give you 30 portions of sponge

On this site you can type in Cake Calculator or go to and look for pan sizes and servings, very helpful for USA bakers. HTH!

In the U.S. The Wilton 'wedding' serving chart is considered the 'industry standard' for any and all cakes that are 3 or 4" tall - *no matter what occasion* it is made for.
For any cake that is 2" (single layer) -especially your 9x13 and 10" sq the 'standard' is 2x2x2. So a 9x13x2 serves 24 and a 10x10x2 would serve 25.
