We use this chart by Wendy's Cake Art for our sizes...

I wouldn't think so...you are doing a 3 layer cake...

A 4" tall 9"x13" cake serves 50... this is the industry standard chart:

AYou can also check out Kara buntin's cake blog. She has a serving chart also worth looking into.

Sorry....I misunderstood your question... We don't use the wedding servings unless its a wedding cake.  We just prefer this chart because it gives people more of what they think of as a "serving" where we live..  The standard serving size is a bit small for our customer base...lol
