How about this?

Make two cuts to divide the cake into 4 (cutting on the diameter of a circular cake, the cuts perpendicular to each other). Now, place the 4 sectors of the cake one over the other. Make a cut such that the cut goes throw the centre cutting each of the cake sectors into half. So now we have done 3 cuts. Each sector is cut into two so 4*2=8.
