How many will a 3 layer 9-inch cake serve

10 years ago

I am considering ordering a 9" 3 layer cake for a family celebration. The bakery says it will serve 22, but I'm not sure how you cut it to get 22 servings.

I found a chart online that showed 22 slices but it is so complicated, I doubt that the waitstaff who will be cutting it will be able to follow the chart.

I don't need 22 slices. I only need 18. How would you instruct the waitstaff to cut the cake to get at least 18 slices?

Here is a link that might be useful: Cake cutting chart
