Serving sizes seem to confuse a lot of people. If you make cakes as a business and say the sample serving size for weddings is 1"x2"x4", some customer think that's way too small because they hear 1 inch and 2 inches and assume it's tiny. It's nice to have some samples to show the actual sizes during a consultation.

So recently, I made some templates for Sample Serving Sizes of Cake that you can simply print on paper or cardstock, cut out, fold, and tape or glue. The templates include 4 sizes:
1"x2"x4" (wedding size serving)
1.5"x2"x4" (party size serving)
2"x2"x2" (standard sheet cake serving)
2"x2"x4" (to show how large a piece that actually would be!)

Someone from another forum mentioned I should post them here, which I thought was a super idea since I've received some great tips from these Wilton forums over the years and so I hope that these templates can help someone too. My little way of saying thanks!

The attached photo shows what one of the pieces looks like on a plate. The template file is too large to attach here to the forum post, so it can be downloaded as a pdf from this web address: http://www.mediafire.com/?d32aeq3vabk2bzz

Brilliant! That slice of cake looks huge! What size is that demonstrating?

I love that it looks like yummy cake and icing...I was expecting a white box on the plate.
