I just got a call for a cake that needs to serve between 75-80 people... If I wanted to make a cross cake what size sheet cake pan do I need..

And how many servings are in a 12 x 18 filled cake?

Thanks J

A 4" tall 12x18 yields 108 wedding servings, and 72 party servings...

according to my servings: 60 servings for a 2" tall 12x18

are you planning to use only a sheet cake or are you using a cross pan w/ a sheet cake underneath?

this chart is always helpful to me:

I Would do the sheet cake and put the cross on top of the sheet cake this will be very pretty and serve the number you need to serve.

I was planning on making the sheet cake into a cross but didn't know if the serving size would be enough...

Forming a cross from a sheet will not give you enough servings -- unless you use *all* of the cake.
Even then you will only yield 54 servings.
I agree w/Indydebi & Tonya....put a cross on a sheet. Otherwise you won't have enough cake.
It would be soooo big you wouldn't have a board big enough for it , nor be able to put it in a box.
