When I tried to work this out, I hit a dead end pretty quickly. Makes me think this isn't solvable. Maybe I'm missing something obvious...
BC  XP = XC tells me that P=0
If P=0, CV  QP = VG means V=G and GPZY=JY means Y=5
and then
CY  GM = ZP means M=5
So...P=0, Y=5, M=5, V=G
VJ  MV = QG becomes GJ  5G = QG...that means J = 2G, therefore G must equal 1, 2, 3, or 4
But if G<5, we can't do the subtraction problem GJ  5G = QG unless Q is a negative integer.

My first random effort netted ten.

After some work I came up with 15. I couldn't use some of these in a sentence, but they sure work with Words With Friends. Only one that isn't good is LIO.

If the cake was just a regular rectangle...
Would cutting a circle out of the middle be considered a "one straight" cut? To keep the numbers simple, if the cake were 2 feet x 4.71 feet, she could cut a circle with a 2 foot diameter out of the middle. You would then have a circle piece with an area of 3.14 feet, and the two side pieces with the same area.
