a customer is interested in me doing two onesie cakes for a shower (expecting twins) and i have no idea how to determine the number of servings on a carved cake. there are only going to be about 20 at the shower. can someone please make a recommendation as to what size pan i should use and how many servings that would yield after the onesie is carved out.

I've never made a carved onsie but I have made a carved Christening Gown. As it turns out there was very little to carve off.

I would suggesst drawing your pattern out on a piece of paper 9x13. Then see how much will be cut away. You may be surprised at how little will be lost.

Good luck and don't forget to share a pic!

I've done a onsie cake before and I'd recommend for that many people to do a double layer 11 x 15 and then carve from there. I always error on the side of caution and I'd rather they have too much cake than not enough. You can look at mine in my pics if you want. Be sure and post yours so we can all see how yours turns out!
