When I make it, I use (2) 10in layers and an 8in carved to make a belly and the ball pan for breast.

Just the 10 inch two layer cake gives you 38 servings. If you add a carved 8 inch plus a couple of balls, you will be WAY over your 30 servings.

Thanks for the tips guys! Does anyone know how many people the soccer ball pan feeds?

From what I can tell from some searching is that is serves 12.

.........From what I can tell from some searching is that is serves 12........

Those are *huge* survings. Using a 10x4" round *plus* a carved 8"er will be *more* than enough for 30 nice sized servings.

I agree kakekadi. I think all the Wilton shaped pans use 1 cake mix and are said to make 12 servings. Yet one cake mix makes a one layer 9 by 13 which serves 25 according to the Wilton charts. I have always wondered about that inconsistency.

To me, a 9x13 needs 1 & 1/2 mixesicon_smile.gif But I know what you are getting at.
One mix cakes (shaped, 10x2" round; 8x2" sq etc) each serve 15 BUT make 24 cupcakes! Wouldn't you say one cupcake is an average sized serving of cake... So why the difference?

I think the shaped pans are at 12 figuring non-consistent cutting pieces given their odd shapes. And served at informal gatherings. And I know they are designed so they all take one box of cake mix. It is not consistent with the other pan servings though. One layer of 9 by 13 (using one box to keep things consistent) serves 25 and with that same one cake mix I do get 24 cupcakes so that part seems consistent.
