With square or rectangle cakes, it's easy to just do the math to figure your servings.....

11x15 cake: 2x2" servings = cut columns/rows of 5x7 = 35 servings
11x15 cake: 2x3" servings = cut columns/rows of 5x5 = 25 servings

12x18 cake: 2x2" servings = cut columns/rows of 6x9 = 54 servings
12x18 cake: 2x3" servings = cut columns/rows of 6x6 = 36 servings

These are based on a single layer cake. If you bake two layers, then you will probably cut the pieces into 1x3" pieces to yield different serving amounts.

Just do the math.....!

Hi,
Recently I used that pan for a church gathering and cut the 2x2 inch servings, nice size. I used a doctored DH mix and found that 2 classic white mixes were too skimpy, I had to add a bit from a third, but didn't matter as I was making MANY! I found that two chocolate mixes were better, but my advice is to measure your batter before baking to be assured satisfaction. I also placed a layer of parchment on the bottom and used two flower nails to promote baking in the center.

chocolate cake always rises higher than other flavors and would then logically fill a pan better than other flavors.

I just looked this one up last night. for the traditional wedding cake slice a stacked 11x15 will give 90 servings. This is off of what is posted on the wilton site.
