Wilton says a 2 layer 6 inch serves 12. I'm figuring 8. Can I cut this based on IndyDebi's method or is this based on wedges (like a pie)? Does it really feed 12?

No it really feeds 14.

Make a straight cut 1/3 of the way across. Make 4 perpendicular cuts from the edge to the cut you just made. 4 servings.


Cut 1/2 thru what's left, one long cut parallel to the previous cut. Make 6 perpendicular cuts to the cut you just made. 6 servings.

Cut the remaining chunk into 4 pieces. 4 servings.

Wilton's guide is pie wedges on a 6" round. You can cut it that way and get 12 svgs. or cut it as Leah said and get 14. I guess it all just depends on who is doing the cutting.

I'm trying to visualize the cuts. So basically, its 3 slices down. The middle slice has 6 slices in it and the end 2 slices each have 4 ? Is that right?

Its a small enough cake, we usually just cut it in slim wedges and get 12-14 depending on how thin. That way everyone gets an edge piece-which with my family is important.

Like Leah_S I count 14 servings for the 6".
