Are party slices larger than a standard cupcake? Is a cupcake about the same as a wedding size? TIA!
Personally, and people will surely disagree, I think a cupcake is about half the size of a slice of cake. If you think about it-a box mix says you can get 12 servings from the mix. But you get 24 cupcakes. Now 12 servings from a mix MAY be party sized servings, but it even a wedding slice, I think, is bigger than a cupcake.
Best way to figure this out is to compare the same amout of batter in cupcakes and a cake. I don't have serving charts memorized, but I can make around 36 or more cupcakes with the same amount of batter I put in a 13x9 (one layer 2 in). So I'm thinking you would get more servings from cupcakes than you would from a 13x9, but I may be wrong here.
And yes the cake mix says it serves 12 people. That is like family size wedge servings. Plus I don't put much stock in a box that tells you you can make a 8in, 9in or 13x9 with the same amount of batter, because we know it takes different amounts of batter to get the 2in layers we all like.
I use 1 cake mix for a 2-layer round 8" cake .... it serves 24 wedding servings, per the wilton chart, which is what I go by and it's how I cut my wedding cakes.
Agree that if the box says "12 servings", they are talking about pie-shaped wedges.
One cake mix makes (generally) 24 standard size cupcakes...so it sounds as if it's about equal in size to your wedding slices
