My avatar is a 6" and 10" cake, I baked 4 cakes and torted each one. then placed filling between them when I stacked. The bottom ended up being 4" tall and the top 4" tall.

Here is my question,
Does that end up being 40 servings or 80 servings?

I thought it was 80, but now I am not so sure. Maybe I am just having one of those days!

All of my cakes are 4" tall as well. I get anywhere from 6-8 servings from a 6" round and 28-30 servings from a 10" round, so that would be about 40 servings to me. It all really depends on your serving size. HTH thumbs_up.gif

Two popular serving charts:

http://www.earlenescakes.com/ckserchart.htm (slightly larger servings)

I would say about 10 servings for the 6 inch and 30 for the 10 inch. So 40 sounds about accuate.
