Depth of cake


I’m looking at the cake calculator and it says 25 pieces for an 8” cake (1x2” slices).

Would this be a 3” deep cake (so 3xlayers) or is it for a 4” deep cake?

Thank you


Hi Rachel

That would be yield from a standard 8" x 3" deep cake. The data was taken from the original chart based on 3" deep cakes.

How to decide on the Cake Portions

Hope this helps. 🙂
