Easy. 8 cubic inches is a standard serving. If your cake is 2" tall, then a serving is 2" X 2" X 2" (side X side X height)

If your cake is 4" tall, then a serving is 2" X 1" X 4" (side X side X height)

divide the side length by the appropriate dimension.

A full sheet cake is 18 X 24. If the cake is 2" tall, 18 / 2 = 9 and 24 / 2 equals 12. 12 X 9 = 108.

If your full size sheet cake is 4" tall, 18 / 2 = 9, and 24 / 1 = 24. 24 X 9 = 216

Leah is awesome, and correct IF shoving two 12x18 half sheets together.

A full sheet is 16 x 24.

A commercial Bun pan is 18" x 26" (outside measurement), and because they are tapered for nesting or making them stackable, the inside measurement is 16.5" x 24.5".

A commercial full sheet is 16" x 24". They are baked in 16" x 24" bakeable cardboard trays that fit into the Bun pans (flat surface portion) which are used during baking for support and handling purposes.

A true commercial full sheet (16" x 24") serves 96 (unit wt. 106-124 oz.).
