I've just been asked by my church to make a cake for Easter coffee hour. It's to be a sheet cake to serve around 40 people. Can anyone tell me what size sheet pan I need? These would larger servings than the 1 1/2 in size serving that I've seen commonly used. Any help would be appreciated. I've just finished Wilton's Course II and this will be my first "public" cake.
I would probably use the 12"x18" cake for 40 people. Usually this size feeds between 35 and 50.
Yep, 1 1/2 sheet pan will feed 40
I have a shower to do and I'm using a 1/3 sheet pan for it. It serves 40, 2x2 in. servings, roughly.
Good luck with your cake as I am doing my first public cake for church for Easter as well!
Thanks for your help. And good luck on your cake as well Samsgranny!
