I just got a call about a cake order to feed 137 people... They want a sheet cake. How large does this sheet cake need to be? Has anyone ever made a sheet cake this large? Thanks in advance for any info and advice....kinda panicking here!
Ive done a sheet for 120... I made it 2 layers (normal 4 in tall ) so servings in just that cake were apx 110 ( cut to the "normal" wedding slices) and then I added a 6 in round in the back corner on an SPS system and got my extra cake there. I used the round to give some demension and added the main decorations there. It was enough cake and a nice little extra to a "plain" sheet. Just a thought, it would get you pretty close. Or you coudl to 2 layers and add cake another sheet and cut in it half and stack it to two olayers and end up with a sheet +half and 4 in high, that would be plenty also.
Maybe someone else will have done something similiar too
First, I'd tell her that there is no way she is getting a cake that serves exactly 137, so she will be charged for the number of servings the cake is designed to serve. What a weird number!
Two 12x18's shoved together or stacked serve 108.
Four 12x18's (2 layer) serve 216.
Four 11x15's, stacked, (i.e. 2 side by side, then 2 on top) will serve 140.
