Hi all,

I have to make this Easter Star cake for 70 people. I wanted to know if any one knows how big to make it. I was going to print on the star 18 x 18 and use that for a template. Do you think that is big enough??

Thanks so much!

18" diam? Will a cake that big fit into your home oven? (It didn't in mine, I had to bake it at work....just an FYI.) icon_wink.gif

I will use my sister's oven. She has a big thermador oven. It is for my mother-in-law. I just wanted to make sure it was going to be big enough for this group thing that she belongs to. I was going to use an 18' pan. I think my sister's oven would hold a 20' pan. Do you think an 18 pan is good or should I use a 20"?

Thanks again!

A 14" round serves 78 people. I don't think you need an 18". Are you only making it one layer?

I feel so stupid now I am re reading the post and I totally misunderstood you. If I am correct you are asking if a 18 diameter star is big enough. I would suggest maybe put a smaller star on top of a half sheet in order to make enough servings. HTH.

PS txsteph this will be my first time moving to texas and I can't wait
