How do I unbake a homemade cake to know macros?

My mom baked a cake for my dad's birthday, it's a really sweet chocolate tractor cake. I want to have a piece, but she isn't really sure about all the calories and macros. She kind of looked at me stupid when I asked if she at least knew macros for the icing, I know! How can I unbake a piece to figure out egg, milk, sugar, bread, etc. I know on a store bought cake I can just look at the nutrition label, but this is baked in real life with no label,

    just guestimate using a known cake entry and move on to more important things like corner, side or middle piece.

    I would just guess. Look up chocolate cake calories/macros and pick the highest calorie one to be safe.

    You can make a recipe here and add in all the ingredients. Then divide that by 8 or 10 or however many slices are in the cake to get the calorie content.

    Find a laboratory to evaluate it, post-defecated of course.

    sorry, nothing you can do other than guestimate and let it go. Next time you can choose to bake it yourself (so you know whats in it) or choose not to have any.
