How would you go about this? I'm think that one cake may be too big to fit out my front door. How would you go about doing this? It can be several cakes, but I'm looking for the least amount of work, ie....not making 10 that serve 25 each, lol. Thanks!

what about doing large sheet with a #10 shaped cake on top? I am not sure. Sorry!

dont think that can be done, unless you can fit an elephant through your doors...
id say sheet cakes with the 10 on top of them... could make the 10s in different colours, or different flowers for decor sort of thing...
maybe they could be persuaded towards something in more of a tiered design if you want, and can present some impressive ideas?

18x26 serves 96 (round numbers: 100)
TWO 18x26's, stacked in a 2-layer cake would serve approx 200. This will be one big honkin' HEAVY cake. (This would be four 12x18's).

A single layer 12x18 (half of the 18x26) will serve approx 50.

A single layer 11x15 will serve approx 35.

Unless you just stack all of these up (and have 3 big muscle men handy to lift this sucker!), I dont' see how you'll get it in just one cake.

What about cupcakes or mini cupcakes? Then position them to look like a 10.

What about a 3D "10"...I'm thinking stacking many layers tall and carving it into a 1 and then doing a ball cake with some round layers stacked in the middle of it to make it taller as well and carving it to look like a 0....I'm not sure how much work it would be, but thinking if you build up, and maybe do one per cake board, then you could easily fit it through your door, and it maybe wouldn't be too heavy. ??? Just a thought!

I think we're going to do one or two smaller more manageable 10's and cupcakes for the rest. They were insistent that it not be a sheet cake with 10 piped on it, but a 10 shaped cake. After talking with my hubby, I think we've come up with a plan. Does anyone have any advice on how to determine the number of servings in the carved 10's though? How do you figure the amount of servings lost when you cut and shape it? Is there a percentage that most people use?
