Hello!

I need a sheet cake that will serve 65 people. The customer wants it double layer to put a filling in the middle. If I make 2 9x13 inch cakes, 2 layers each and push them together will this be enough to serve 65? I looked around and I keep coming up with 48 servings, but I think it should be more?

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you!

Yes- that would be enough. a 2 layer, 9x13 serves 35-40, so u should have plenty w/2 of them together.

if thats the only pan you have then thats what youll have to make. if you make 2 double layers for a total of 80 servings, she still needs to pay for 80 and not 65 since that is the closest you can get using your pans. if you have a 11x15 pan, a double layer of that will give 70 servings.

And just to clarify .... you'll be baking four 9x13's, right?

A double layer 9x13, when cut in the standard 1x2x4, means the cake will be cut in approx 9 rows by 6 columns = 54 servings.

Four 9x13's, which, when shoved together, will make a 13x18 double layer cake. when cut in 1x2x4 pieces, that means you will cut the cake in approx 13 rows x 9 columns = 117 servings. (or if you allow for shrinkage, it will be a regular 12x18, and you'll probably cut 12 rows by 9 columns = 108 servings.)

Be sure you charge for 108 servings.

If you want to invest in the 11x15 pan, a double layer one of those serves 70.

Yes, I was planning on baking four cakes. I do have an 11x18 pan, but how would I cut that in half to fill it? I just picture that being a nightmare to get apart and then put the top back on it because of the size.

Thank you all so much for the input!! I'd be lost without your help!

Thank You!!

If you bake two cakes for a double layer....you can just fill between the cakes and not worry about splitting them in half.

That's what I did for my starbucks cake. Much easier than torting.
