My doll cake is 8" across the bottom, 8 " tall and 2 1/2" across the waist. Approximately how many servings, best guess, can I tell my client it will serve??? I doweled between the 3rd and 4th layers where it has a cake board for stability and it has 6 layers in total.

I count it as 15 servings

Thanks!! I'm trying to get out making a 9" to go under it. I sat down and counted as well and I think even a few more slices can come of it since each part is 4" tall. I was counting closer to maybe even 18???

Thanks again,

Yeah, you probably could get a few more than 15. I tend to round everything down by the nearest 5 servings to be on the safe side.

I think I quoted a customer 30 servings for the doll cake with a since layered 9" round underneath it. I figure a 9" round double layer is 30 servings, so half is 15, and then another 15 for the doll. I did tell her she could probably get close to 35 servings out of it though.
