Does any one have a cake chart for the off sizes like 5" 7" 9" ect. I have looked on line and for instance get 32 servings for a 2" x9" on place and 22 servings on another site. icon_confused.gif

For 1"x2"x4" (8 cu. in.) servings:
5" = 9.82
7" = 19
9" = 32

You can calculate servings by using this formula:
Half diameter = radius
Radius squared (X itself) X Pi (3.14) = surface square inches
Surface square inches divided by 2 (2" long serving) = servings total

or use Metria's cake calculator:
