Hi Everyone!
I have an order for a flower shaped cake for 20 people. I don't have a flower cake pan, so I'm planning on using a round pan, and carving the petals. The cake chart I normally use says that a 9in round serves 22, and the 10in serves 30. Do you think I would have enough cake if I carve the 10in cake? I'm planning on decorating the cake similar to the cake posted by Jamiet. Thanks for your great design!!
Thanks for all of your help.

I just thougth of something else. I am only doing a single layer cake, so I guess I will need a 12in cake. A 12in round should serve 23, so do you think that would be ok for a flower cut-out, or should I go larger?

YOu definitely need at least a 12"; cut into roughly 2" cubes (2x2x2) it should give 25 servings even w/craving some away. I'd ask them what they prefer - to have some left over or maybe run a bit short.
