I did find a sheet cake serving count on here, it stated that in a half sheet there were 54 servings, I was wondering if that was single or double layer. If anyone knows the answer, please let me know. Thanks bunches.

Thanks so much everyone, I have only done tiered cakes before for weddings and I try to not do sheets in general, this was the first time I was asked about them. Thanks so much. Love you guys.

29 is a prime number ... how do you cut a cake in 29 even pieces?

I think that 29 serving figure is the old mathematical equation for cake servings.

Length X width X height / 8 cubic inches= 29.25 for a 9x13x2

I think you'd have to set 2 1" slivers next to eachother lol
