http://www.abridalshower.com/p.....res-15.jpg Several people have mentioned that this cake was made using a heart shaped pan. What size do you think they used. I didn't realize there are so many sizes. I need to feed approx. 30-35 people. TIA. I have no clue what size hearts were used to make this cake.

the link doesnt work.
a 10 inch heart pan will give 38 wedding servings, a 12 inch will give 34 party servings.

Here is the link hope it works this time. I am trying to make the cake pictured but I don't know what size heart pans they used. I need 30-35 servings. If I have to I guess I could also do cupcakes.

If you don't already have a heart pan, I would just carve the shape out of a sheet/square pan.

i would stick with the sizes i gave, using two of them, that should account for cutting off the bottom of the hearts. (remember you dont have to do exactly what is in the pic!)
although if you dont already have the pans, then certainly carving like others suggest is the way to go.

brincess_b do they look like 10 or 12 inch hearts to you? I want to make the same size cake pictured. Thanks.

You can't always base your cake off a picture. Sometimes pictures serve more or less servings than are needed.

You can do it with any size heart pan. You can actually use different sizes to give some shape to the cakes as well. I actually like it with a bigger heart on top and a smaller one on bottom.

what texas sugar said! although, why do u want to use the same sizes so much?

that cake will look good in any size. as you can see in the photo theres nothing to give any idea of size, so your guess is as good as mine. so you would need to try and find out who made the cake and ask them.

or just make the sizes you actually need, and enjoy!
