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?

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 icon_biggrin.gif

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.
