I am making a 2 tiered cake for a family baby shower to serve about 35-40 people. This is strictly a personal project. No payment involved/considered. I would like to put aside all the serving charts and ask you what size you would make if you were doing this project for yourself. Heavy hors'Dourves are being served also.

I was thinking of a 6 and10 inch, but afraid it wouldn't be enough. I considered buying 7 and 11 inch pans, but didn't want to spend the money on pans I probably wouldn't use much.

6x8 would be enough, if you don't want leftovers.

agree with this. I'd use a 6/10 simply because I dont' own any odd size pans (all of mine are even number sizes). Wilton chart shows this will serve 12/38 = 50 servings. More than enough, even if you cut them bigger.

My family eats like cows and this would be more than plenty, especially if there are other foods there.

Thank you everyone for your comments. Now I feel more comfortable going with 6 and 10 and not buying the odd size pans.
