Okay, I'm not very good at math...

I have a request for a rubic's cube cake to serve 40. What size cake would you use? How big square to get 40 servings? Thanks!

height x width x depth

divided by

the height x width x depth of what you consider to be a serving.

so....

an 8" cube = 8x8x8 = 512 cubic inches of cake
MY party serving is 2x2x3= 12 cubic inches of cake

512 divided by 12 = 42 servings.

If you cut an 8" cube into industry standard 8 cu. in. servings (1" x 2" x 4"), it would serve 64. If you charge per serving, you should get paid for ALL actual servings, not just what the serving goal is. (sometimes it just works out to more servings than required rather than ordering fewer servings than needed, plus they'll have leftovers for breakfast!)
