Last year I did a cake for my brother's graduating class- 200 people.
I was just starting out and I was sweating buckets last year!! They paid my $200. I know, I know $1/per person but that's they're budget and I said yes because the Vice Principal is a good friend of the family.

Anyway....I get a call from the VP. The PTA is asking for my cake again. 200 people...for THURSDAY! OK, I agreed to do it...Now I'm trying to remember what pan sizes I used/ should use.

Also, any tips pn making a graduation cap out of fondant??

You can look in the "sketches and templates" section in the gallery and probably find a template... Otherwise, I've just covered a bowl with gumpaste and let it dry, for the hat part...then just a square for the "rim"...glued them together with royal icing. worked swell! icon_biggrin.gif

I would probably do four cakes that are 12X18? I think that's the size... I don't know though, maybe someone else will come along... HTH!!!

two full sheets would be enough...4 12x18's.

diane, how big do you cut your pieces in order for two 12X18" to work? My chart says they get 54 pieces each....

2 layer 12x18, so 4 cakes...

Oh I see diane.... I didn't see that you'd put the 4 in front of the 12X18...
