I've googled and can't find how many wedding servings in a 15" round. Anyone know? I'm terrible w/ math!

I am not absolutely postive that my answer is correct, but I think it would be 70 if you were basing your serving sizes and cutting pattern on Wilton charts. Here is my justification. According to the Wilton charts a 14" serves 63 and a 16" serves 77. If you were to take the 14" cake and add a 1" perimeter, you would get approximately 7.5 servings (63 + 7 = 70). If you add another inch, you would have approximately 8 additional servings (70 + 8 = 78 servings). My best guess would be 70 servings in a 15" round that is 4" high.

HTH

lees_luv - thanks so much for the response! I didn't get a notification.

I was trying to use math formulas - can never remember if it's diameter x pi or radius2 x pi! your way is easier!

Um....twice the radius IS the diameter.

You are right, varika! I was trying to figure out how to type the "squared" symbol.

Oh! Pi*r-squared is area of the cake, while pi*d or 2*pi*r is circumference. Sorry, didn't understand what you were posting.
