Portion Guide

Below is a guide to the number of portions you can cut from round and square cakes of various sizes.

Fruit cakes are usually cut into portions measuring 1" x 1", whilst sponge cakes are cut into slightly larger portions, measuring 2" x 1".

This means you get less portions from a sponge cake than you do from a fruit cake.
