A friend of mine wants me to make a baby shower cake that will serve 50 people. It is a single tier cake, but she wants me to use a round pan. Is there a size that would serve this many? Or am I looking at a stacked cake?

Ok just for clarity--

a tier cake has different sized cakes ex 5 x 8 x 11 inch cake

a stacked cake is a tier cake where no pillar separations are used and it is stacked one tier upon the other.

You can get 50 servings out of a 16 inch round cake pan by just baking one 16" layer. A two layer 16 inch cake will serve 100.

Is that what you meant??

And it's three recipes or cake mixes for one layer.

There is no exact 50 serving. You can use a 12" round & have a little too many servings of 56, 1x2x4 serving. Don't do the round cut, cut across as if it's a rectangle.

Thanks for the help. I will use the 16" round for this one.
