Hi everyone, I hope someone can help me.
I'm doing my daughters graduation cake and it needs to serve 100 people. I am just planning on a sheet cake type but not a round stacked cake as it will be too hard for me since I have not been doing this that long. I'm not sure how big a pan I should use. I plan on a double layer. Would 12X24X2 be the right size? That is what I saw on a bakery site to order for a cake that would serve 96. I wanted to come here and make sure though since you are all so wise!

A 12x18, when cut in 2x2x2 pieces (single layer) will serve 54 (round numbers, 50), so you would need two of these .... 18x24 ..... to serve 100.

Besides what debi suggested other ideas you could use:
14x14x4 (dbl layer 14"sq) = 98
12x18x4 (dbl layer 12x18 sheet) = 108 This is basically the same as what debi suggested only instead of putting the two 2" cakes side by side, put them on top of each other w/filling between themicon_smile.gif
16x4" round = 100
