ASo I'm wondering how you guys deal with tall cakes. I know the norm is 4" tall cake but what if the cake is 5,6 or 8 inches tall. How do you calculate servings then? Would they be super thin? Lol I have no idea.

No... typically, with a board every 4" of height, and sliced in standard serving sizes... this is helpful:

If you are doing something like a 8" double barrel you double the number of servings.  If you are making a 5" or 6" cake the slices/serving sizes are the same - just make sure you charge extra for the added product.
