Hello,

I'm being asked to quote a job of several sheet cakes. I haven't really done those before, and I'm trying to figure out my costs, servings, etc.

What dimensions do you consider a serving? I looked at the Wilton wedding cake guide, and I don't think that it realistic for my customers. I will be doing a two layer cake, no matter what shape, but I wondered if 3x3 is too big?

Thanks!

The industry standard is 8 cubic inches, 1"x2"x4" or 2"x2"x2".

Ditto what CWR said. To me that is a decent cake slice. We really don't have to super size everything when it comes to food. Cake is an extra, it isn't meant to be eaten until they stuffed with it.

I use the Wilton wedding chart, which is 1x2x4 for all of my cakes, no matter what the occasion is.

I guess you are right. The 3x3x2 would then be 12 cubic inches. That's a lot!

Thanks so much!
