I've been asked to make a cake depicting 100. It is for 35-50 people!! My first inclination was to make 3 9x13 pans and carve them so I would get nice oval 0s but now I am thinking that is too much cake for that many people and am now considering making two 9" circles and one shallow loaf, but that might be too small.
So two questions.....
1. Which of the two cake tin scenarios would you recommend?
2. Either way, I will need a large rectangular cake board. Where can I get one of these by Monday (so no mail order). Do Michael's or AC Moore tend to stock big ones? It would need to be at least 27" long. Any other suggestions for this would be much appreciated since I am under the gun a little.
Wouldn't the two 9s and a loaf pan give you more then enough servings if they were two layers? And you could use foam core but I would double up the 1/2 inch stuff for stability while transporting.
