What would you recommend for 150 people? A full and a half sheet is what I'm thinking.

The serving guidelines that I have show that a full and a half sheet would work, if they're two layers. 60 servings per double layer cake. HTH

Really? That seems like a lot of cake if I make them both double layered. I was thinking a full sheet and a 12x18" sheet, single layer.

They also want a miniture wedding style cake (for an anniversary), triple tier, with chocolate mouse centers. I don't think the realize how much money they'll be spending, if they keep that plan.

a full and half sheet would be good, but it all depends on how big or small the slices will be. icon_wink.gif

Now that I think about it, two 1/2 sheets double layered might be what I want... plus it would balance out the table nicer. They want half white cake and half chocolate, so this is what I'll suggest. I think a 1/2 sheet double layered cake can easily serve 75. That is a lot of cake.

Thanks for your help!

If you all would stop using vague terms like "half" and "full", it might be easier.

Single Layer:
18x24 = "full" sheet. Cut in 2x2x2 = 108 servings (9 rows x 12 columns).
18x12 = "half" sheet. Cut in 2x2x2 = 54 servings (9 rows x 6 columns).

Double Layer:
18x24: Cut in 1x2x4 = 216 servings (18 rows x 12 columns)
18x12: Cut in 1x2x4 = 108 servings (12 rows x 9 columns)

put three of those 18 by 12 side by side and you will be good to go. we cut a 1/2 inch plywood board and use it for this size cake. see my photos, we do lots of sheet cakes for the local schools this size. single layer.
