ASo by that chart it would be a very small cake 8 inch with a 6 inch on top of it.....just make sure they understand how small the slices are actually going to be. Some people most cut very llarge slices so they would be expecting a very large cake

The above chart is based on a piece which is 1x2x4" and believe it or not, is not a small piece.  This is the same standard size that is used in the industry,  So, if after you tell the customer that the 6/8 serves 36  based on this standard size ,and the customer wants to serve bigger pieces, be sure you are charging appropriately for a bigger cake.
