I had a quick question- not sure if this forum is quite the right place for it- but does anyone have a good estimate for the number of calories in a relatively large slice of chocolate cake? I would say the dimensions were about 3 inches high by 4 inches by 4 inches (it was a layered sheet cake). Any input would be greatly appreciated! I was thinking (perhaps optimistically) that it was around 800 calories?
Do you know how to use the tools on here and log your foods? Im sure the food logger would have choco cake. Utilize the tools, they are awesome.
Looking at a few sources around the internet, a cubic inch of chocolate cake has around 10-30 calories. At 48 cubic inches, that puts your slice at roughly 500-1500 calories, depending on the type of cake*. Denser cakes, like pound cake, devil's food cake, and chocolate fudge cake would be around 1250. Lighter cakes, like sponge cake, would be 600.
*type of cake - calories, according to various websites:
Chocolate Pound cake - 1344
Chocolate cupcake ("NS as to icing") - 1296
Chocolate Devil's Food (a "pudding type mix") - 1200
Chocolate Fudge cake (a "pudding type mix") - 1200
"German" Chocolate cake (coconut-pecan frosting and filling)- 1056
Chocolate Chiffon cake - 624
Chocolate sponge cake - 528
