Bot sure if I am in the right channel but i didn;t know where to ask.
A cake shop 30 min from my house has launched a special this week.
They are advertising a blank fondant cake, 8" round for $88 Australian dollars.
In the ad it says, "serves 20 large portions or 40 small portions".
I find it really curious that an 8" cake, unless it is a a really high cake, to serve 40 portions.
Can that be done?
The cake shop has sent me a picture of how to cut it but this is so small...
What do everyone think?

Your question came right on time. I need to make a cake for 40 people and I want to keep it as small as possible (not quite this small). If you can get 40 pieces out of an 8" cake, I know I can get it out of a 10" and 14" tier cake. Thanks for showing the diagram.
based on my cake servings, a 12" round cake serves 47 at a wedding.
The Wilton chart lists an 8" round, 4" high as 24 servings. However, if they're talking about a heavy fruitcake, often those servings are half the size, at least for weddings.
The ad says the customer has a choice between chocolate mud cake, white chocolate mud cake and butter cake...
