Hi all,
I am going to be doing a cake this weekend for a baby baptism. The cake will need to feed 60 people. My largest pan is the Wilton 12x18. Will this be a large enough cake to feed that many people? Or do I need to maybe make two cakes that size?
Thanks for your help.

12x18 = 54 2x2x2 pieces if one layer

if you make it 2 layers (a full 4" tier) then get 108 1x2x4 slices (same amount of cake per serving)

a 4" tall 12 X 18, cut in the standard serving size of 1" X 2" X 4" tall will serve 108.

a 2" tall 12 X 18, cut in the standard serving size of 2" X 2" X 2" tall will serve 54.

Each serving provides 8 cubic inches of cake, or a standard serving. Difference is in the height.
