Hello All,
I am just wondering how many servings you get out of a 12"x18". I might have a wedding cake to do and I want to give him the option of sheetcakes for the kitchen because they need the cake to serve 400. I thought I could give him the choice of a full cake on display for 400 or just display enough for 200 and then do sheetcakes to make up for the rest. I thought three 12"x18" stacked (so 6 cakes) so they have two layers would work but I just wondered about the serving sizes. Has anyone done this before? How many did you have them serve? Also, how much should I charge for the sheetcakes? They would just be buttercream filled and iced, scored for cutting, with a rosebud on each piece.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give,

If you are doing double layer cakes (4in high) then you should get 100 wedding servings from a cake that size. As far as charging i charge about $1 a serving for those. If they just want it plain iced with no piped flowers on it i would charge more like $80 per cake for that.
