If you are going to do all the books the same size 3 9x13's will give you exactly 150 servings according to the wilton chart.

I don't know, do you think they should all be the same size ? She didn't say. Also if I do them all the 9x13, should I cut them in half and stack, or are they supposed to be done just in the sheet cake shape ?

Here is a link to one I found on Flickr. It is by Merissa of Springlakecake here on CC. I checked her gallery on here and did not see the cake here.

I did lots of stacked books for grad cakes this year- and usually I did the 9x13s but since you need to carve the spine off and stuff, I don't think it would be enough unless they were really tiny pieces. I you do 9x13s only- do each with two baked layers, not one that you torted.

Since most wedding cakes are graduated sizes, I'd do the bottom cake a larger one, then a 9x13 and a slighty smaller one on top.

If you have a10x15x3, or something around that- it makes a great base size book without being too massive. It takes 3 mixes- so it will give you quite a bit of your servings.

wow, they are great. I wonder what size she used ? I'm gonna send her a message and see if she will get back with me.
