Cake Baking and Serving Guides
The charts below are based on baking recommendations from the Wilton Test Kitchen; your results may vary depending on oven performance or altitude in your area. Always check for doneness at the shortest bake time listed.
Serving amounts are based on party-sized portions of 1.5 in. x 2 in. or smaller wedding-sized portions of approximately 1 in. x 2 in. Cakes from 3 in. to 6 in. high, baked in the same size pan, would yield the same number of servings because they follow the same pattern of cutting. Cakes shorter than 3 in. would yield half the number of servings indicated for that pan. Number of servings are intended as a guide only.
Icing amounts are very general and will vary with consistency, thickness applied and tips used. Icing amounts allow for top and bottom borders.
