I'm trying to figure out what sizes to bake for a Square tiered wedding cake for 250-275 servings. My Wilton square pans' insert has a chart that says a 16 inch square (2 layer) serves 128 but on the Wilton website it claims the same size is 80 servings! That's a HUGE difference! Which is correct? I need to finish baking this cake tomorrow so please leave any advice!

The pan is correct, and if you're reading the wedding cake chart--it's also correct:

Thank you, I was reading a Wilton chart however it was different so must have been for other occasion cakes. Thank you for the correct chart!

A wedding serving is 1" x 2" for a two layer cake so you would figure a 16" by multiplying 16 by 8= 124. A single layer would be 2 x2 so 8 x 8 = 64 servings. I do not use party sizes EVER due to fact that most people do not eat pieces of cake that big. When I serve a cake with wedding servings many people ask for an even smaller piece.

I am grateful for the clarification and fast responses but feel a little like an idiot... Need more sleep, that's what I will blame it on icon_wink.gif
Thank you!
