AForgive me if this has been asked before, but how much of a price difference is there, generally, between an 8" square cake and a 9×13 cake? (same cake for both)

How much less ingredients does the 8" take?

Are you saying they contain the same amount of servings?

Oh no, sorry long day! I just meant same type of cake and icing. I imagine you would get several more servings out of a 9×13.

AForgot to mention, I saw one place that priced an 8×8 as \$20 less than a 9×13. Which is what made me wonder. Is there that much of a difference in ingredients?

AI'm not sure. 2" or 3", I'm guessing?

A8" square, 2-layer is approximately the same number of servings as a 9x13 single layer based on the chart I use. I charge about \$.25 less per serving for a single layer sheet, simply because it is less work for me.

I always get confused on the whole cake serving size thing since most of the 9×13 cakes I've seen cut have been about 12 pieces, maybe 24 depending on who was cutting. Lol.

The 8" in this case would be 1 layer still. How many servings would that be?

AI base my servings on 1x2x4 double layer or 2x2 square for a single layer. So that would give you about 16 servings for an 8" square. I always provide customers with a cutting chart (not that they follow it), and if I happen to be at the party, I am generally asked to cut the cake following those guidelines. I was raised on giant pieces of cake in comparison, but I find that peopke are satisfied with that serving size, and if there are leftovers, they can go for seconds, lol.
