Hi everyone...my first forum question .......I have to make a first communion cake, and the customer has requested a cross cake but needs it to serve 60people....the wilton cake pan is too small to accomodate ...what size of pan should i use to bake a slab and carve my own cross ...if anyone can please help me ....thanks
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.
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.
Wow 36?? I was told differently. Guess it just depends.
Thanks everyone ....i'll post my pic once completed ...thanks again for the reply's
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!
