How many people can a 6x8" round & a 8x10" round feed?
How do you determine how many people a cake can feed?
The industry (8 cu. in.) standard chart:
That is the best sizing and explanation I have seen. I know most people try to cut 6 ad 8in cakes like pie wedges, and they expected to serve more people. But at places I take 8in dessert cakes, I can get 14-16 slices, not as shown on the illustration, but flat, 1in wide slices. You really have to explain to customers or give them a serving chart/cutting guide so they understand. This is perfect, except which do you bas your price on, generous servings, sensible servings(my choice) or event servings?

The one that's equivalent to industry standard 8 cu. in. servings.
If you're using another chart that yields fewer servings, you need to increase the price per serving.
