I have a lady that is interested in an octogon shape cake. I haven't been able to find a website that will give me an idea of the servings for these cakes.

Should I just base it off of a round cake of the same size?

Not sure...

a 2 layer 9" HEXAGON is 20 servings and a 9" round is 24 servings so I bet you're in the 24-30 range for a 9" octagon. HTH

Nope. She wants an OCTOGON. That is why I am having a time finding out what the servings are because it is an unusual cake shape...
