...had a request for a butterfly cake for a friend of mine... well, rather than carving one, I have the Wilton butterfly pan... Does anyone know how many people this would serve? She needs it for about 30 people. I have the instruction "manual" that came with the pan, but nowhere on it does it say number of servings. I think the pan looks a little small for that many people, but I don't know.

Can anyone help? Thanks!!!

Those pans are usually one cake mix and will serve 12-15 people. Do you have some heart pans. You can take them and trim the points to make some butterfly wings.

I have the 8" heart and the 12" heart... now that is a pretty good idea... what about the middle/the body of the butterfly?

I thought about just doing the Wilton pan and layering it on top of a 11 x 15 sheet, but I don't want to get too big, and I'm trying to keep expenses down. What do you think?

Why not just do 2 layers of the butterfly pan ?

never even crossed my mind... that is a good idea, too....

Would that be hard to make level with the top of the cake having indentions and raised places?

You can do two 8ins, trim the ends and use those to form the body, or make a couple off cupcakes for the body.

I wouldn't think it would be hard to level The icing filling will fill the gaps where designs/indentations are...
