one ounce of cake is 100 calories, and one serving of a "box mix" cake like duncan hines is 1/12 of the cake for about 200 calories. so in theory its 1/24 of a cake that you'd make from a box mix, or a 1/2 slice of the whole duncan hines/pillsbury/sarah lee cake.
ounces measures weight, and cheese is much denser than cake, so i would expect that it isn't the same size as an ounce of cheese.

If it's anything like cheese, an ounce is the size of a pair of dice. Your typical party piece from a sheet cake is probably about 4oz.
Edit: Okay, yeah, cake is lighter than cheese. Nevermind. Visualize the cake. Was it the size of a ho-ho, or more like a honeybun? If you have something to compare it to, that might help you find out how much it weighs.

I went to a luncheon yesterday, and they served a sheet cake with frosting. I splurged and had about 3/4 of the piece they served me (it was a sit down, where you can't control what is served or in what portions). It was a large piece IMHO. I have not had cake in over a year, so it was a treat for me.
The tracker uses ounces to measure this kind of cake, so I'm wondering if anyone knows how to eyeball an ounce of cake.
