I'm trying to figure out what pan to use to yield cake for around 25 size pieces.
Any suggestions..

How about if i were to make a stacked cake..what two pans would you recommend?
I have a friend coming over tomorrow to go over a cake for a first birthday party..she would need around 25servings.

I was thinking the closest pan i have to that serving is a 12x12(36serv) or a 14"round (29ppl).
I don't have a tonnes of cake pans but i guess i'd be willing to go out and invest if i have too. I was thinking of maybe having a number 1 sticking out of the top of the what size would you go with?

I would probably go with a 6" and a 9" according to MY charts that would give you 28 party sized slices between the two. With the 6" being 8 party sized slices and the 9" being 20 party sized slices. You could always go a step further and have a 4" cake on top of that and take that off when it's time to serve and use it as the smash cake for the baby.

For just 25 servings you need to use 1 1/2 cake mixes so make the 9 & 6 single layers.
Otherwise you will be giving them twice as much cake as they need.
Remember a 2x2x2 piece is the *same* amount of cake as a 1x2x4.
