I have just been asked to make a cake to serve 100 people. I've decided to make it simple and do a sheet cake but I have no idea what size pan I need to buy or where to buy it. Plus this cake is due next Saturday, 2/6/10. All help and ideas are greatly appreciated.

A 12x18x2" sheet cake will serve 48-54, so you would need two of those to serve 100.

a full sheet single layer not torted/filled - 18x24 will feed 108 people if cut into 2x2 inch slices. Or you could do a half sheet 12x18 torted and filled cut into 1x2 inch slices (this will be the same amount of cake, since the half sheet will be double the height). It amounts to 8 inches cubed of cake either way, but with the half sheet torted and filled it looks nicer and seems more "custom" and professional to me.

If you make a 4" tall cake, a 12x18 will get you 108 1x2x4 servings. I believe you can buy this at Michaels or WalMart - it's been awhile since I've bought pans, but either of those stores should have one.

You would need two of the 12x18's (a 2-layer cake) to achieve the 4" height for the 1x2x4" pieces. If these are torted and filled, it will look really beautiful when it's cut.

Thanks everyone. I got the 12 x 18 x 2 pan. I think I will make two single layered cakes.
