Yay!! I am so happy I can finally help someone. I just had to do a cross cake. At first my client needed it for 60 but then dropped down to 40. If It were for 60 I was going to use the 12x18 pan. I think a one layer feeds about 80 or so.

Here is a link on how to cut your cross.

If you want to see my cross I will be posting it in my pics hopefully tomorrow.
Good luck! thumbs_up.gif

A 12X18 pan will serve approx 36 cut at 2X3" pieces. Better double that cake, or make it 2 layers and cut the pieces much smaller. thumbs_up.gif

If you want to use the wilton cross pan, just bake a larger rectangular cake and put the cross on top, I have one like that in my pics if you want to see. good luck and welcome to CC!
