No, I don't mean how many times can a ball be pitched? (Sorry about the pun.) I have to make a basketball cake and will be using a half sphere pan, 8"x4". I have always had trouble determining servings in a carved cake, but this should be pretty straight forward, no? I would appreciate any help you can give me. 

 

Thanks,

 

Jan

go by the amount of batter and fudge it a bit

 

get the wilton wedding cake data chart

 

http://www.wilton.com/wedding/wedding-cakes/wedding-cake-data.cfm

 

and compare the amount of batter you use in the sphere to that much batter/servings listed in the chart

 

and you should have about the same number of servings from the sphere--maybe a few less

Thank you, Kate. That was what I was thinking I'd probably do. (I'm just glad that I don't have to serve it.)
