Someone has asked me to do a #29 birthday cake that feeds 40 people. Don't you think a separate 2 and 9 would have to be huge to feed that many people?
I was thinking about making a 29 that is shaped with no space in between the numbers. Do you think that would look just as good?
I think either would be alright...
i did a 30 number on a half sheet cake it fed enough people ,
i bake one 3 and one 0 and put it on a halfsheet cake
hmm are you going to be using number pans? or will you be carving the cakes from a template? It depends on how big your cake is going to be. The big number cakes I have seen I think woud feed 40 people no problem, if you use the wilton cutting chart.
Maybe someone else will have some better input
I was going to cut each number out of a 9x13 and fill it so it will be 2 layer.
Other option is cut the number #29 out of an 11x15 and fill it to be 2 layer.
I hate guessing servings on carved cakes.
I would say it depends on the size of serving. Find out serving size they want and calulate from there.
