Celebration cake portion guide
Celebration cakes can be made for any occasion and in all shapes and sizes. The number of slices obtained from a cake obviously depends on the size of the slice cut, but also on the shape of the cake. A square cake is the most economical to cut. It is normal to cut a bigger slice from a sponge cake than from a fruit cake and therefore a fruit cake will normally yield a larger number of slices. The following cake portion guide is for guidance only…….
|Rich Fruit Cake||Light Fruit Cake||Sponge Cake|
|8″||40 Slices||30 Slices||20 Slices|
|10″||68 Slices||50 Slices||34 Slices|
