Does any one know how many serving are in in a 6" ball pan?

There is a link to the pan. I only need to use half of the ball to go onto a cake, but I have no idea how many serving it holds. A 6 inch round serves 12, so I am sort of under the impression that the hole pan serves 12 but I am not 100% sure. If you could please let me know I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

I would say that pan serves anywhere between 10-12.

Yes I have that pan and each half of the sphere is the same as a 6" by 2" high round pan. I actually filled a 6" pan with sugar and then transferred the sugar to the half sphere to check the volume and it's pretty exact. So in my serving chart (I use Wilton) the complete sphere using both halves, is 12 servings.

Yep I would have said the same - I made a spherical cake using that same pan (both halves, obviously!) for a 12 year old boy's birthday party (I think there were 12 of them there) and the feedback from his mother said there was plenty... if the whole thing is enough for twelve boys, half of it should definitely be enough for anyone who DOESN'T have 'unlimited cake space' haha!
