I have an order for a Bible/Book cake that needs to serve 30.

I'm carving this myself and I'm unsure as to whether to do a 2 layer 9 x 13 or 11 x 15. If I go by the Wilton guide party size on a 9 x 13 serves approx 45, so with the carving will I be ok in doing a 2 layer 9 x 13 or would you suggest the 2 layer 11 x 15.

I seem to have a bad habit of giving away cake servings if that makes any sense. I'm trying really hard to curb myself and get on better track with what I'm providing for what I've charged.

Any help is much appreciated!

I did one of the book cakes recently (and I am NOT very good) but I used two 9 x 13 layers. I used 2 because when I cut the center and tapered down the sides, I wanted to be sure that the book was still thick enough. I had way more than enough for 30 people. Hope this helps.

Edited because I went back and looked and I used two.

Great job on your book cake. Question, how did you do the cover for the book (the darkest area of your cake) Did you cover a board separately in fondant and lay the cake on top to give it that effect?

I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to do it in all BC with fondant accents
