Can anyone tell me how to figure out how many slices different size cake are? A friend asked me to make her a cake and I'm trying to figure out what size I need. This is going to be my first "professional cake" and I'm very nervous.

This is the chart I go by to determine pricing and servings. For example, the 10" round says it serves 38. I tell the client, "This cake will serve 25-35, depending on how you cut it."

If it's for a wedding cake, you can pretty much go by the chart, because the majority of venues/caterers cut into 1x2x4 pieces.

Here's a link to my website page that shows you how to cut a round (or square) wedding cake to achieve these servings:
