I have a request for a ball themed cake. I am going to use the wilton ball pan, but need to know how many servings it provides. Has anyone made this before that can help? It was not in the directions, Thanks!

The ball pan uses the same amount of batter as a 2-layer 8" cake, so I would go with that serving chart. According to Wilton an 8" round serves 24 - but that is wedding-sized slices. I guarantee you can get at least 16 healthy-sized servings out of it. I can see where 24 might be possible but it's a stretch.

I thought the ball was kind of small; I was amazed the batter actually fit into it, but it does!

I was shocked how small the silly thing was, I was expecting it to be huge. What a pain serving those ball cakes though. Anybody got any hints!

I just cut it lengthwise like the way you cut a normal party or wedding cake (long strips, then cut each strip into the pieces...a' la indydebi's guide), starting at the end, but I admit the end piece was all--and I do mean ALL--icing. I think wedge-style makes for more uniformly iced pieces. Just make sure your cake recipe is sturdy. I had a nut cake that was rather crumbly...total PITA to cut; wedge-style never would have worked out.

I know the ball pan seems so small! That is why I was scared to go with the serving size for the batter in it. Thanks for the help! I didnt want to make it for my customer then be short cake for her party.

Remember fellow cake bakers;
you can bake any size ball with rounded metal or glass mixing bowls.
Happy Baking and Decorating,

Not many... it's not all that big.

I definatley found it easier to cut and serve this cake evenly when a cake board is placed between the two cakes. Then removed to cut the second layer. As far as servings, I usally get nice slices, about 14.

I'd say about 12-15 servings.

Would you use two cake boards back to back or just one?

AHi! I want to know if the amount of servings are for the whole cake or just for half of the ball? The pan that i'm using is the one of 8,75in for diameter.

Thanks!
