A friend wants me to make her daughters birthday cake this weekend. She needs it to feed 14 people, 6 being kids.

Will the Wilton guitar pan feed that many people? I'm thinking I might throw in 6 cupcakes just in case?

The pan isn't terribly deep so even if I over fill the pan a little to get it to rise all the way up it won't be full height (which annoys me greatly - I generally only bake in 3" deep pans now even for 2" cakes but anyway icon_razz.gif ) Would I be better to bake 2 thinner layers and fill the cake?

Ugh the decisions to make Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the info on how many people that the pan feeds: http://www.wilton.com/idea/Electric-Guitar-Cake

With that you could make the pan taller by torting it and I always overfill the shaped cake pans like that icon_redface.gif HTH

thanks cakeandpartygirl icon_smile.gif Hmm it only feeds 12 ( I was afraid of that) Not sure why I didn't think to look there for servings - I must still be in a post holiday fog LOL

I suppose if I overfill the pan to make it as tall as possible and then torte and fill it I could squeak and extra couple of servings out of it. I think I will do a few cupcakes too just in case.

I think the cupcakes are a good idea. Maybe you could do them to spell out the receipents name if it's not too long so it can be cohesive

I did the guitar pan (the only one of two character pans I own) a while back and added cupcakes with musical notes on them.

Bake a 1/2 sheet and cut the shape of the guitar out of it. You can make it any size you need that way. You don't need to spend the $$ on those pans to create the same effect! Make a cardboard stencil and you can use that forever!

Good luck!
