I have a request to do a baby shower cake for around 50 people. I have free reign on the design. I've never made the baby bottom cake before so was wondering how many servings does the baby bottom cake serve? It looks like something I would like to try.

It all depends on your bottom layer. I usually do a 10 inch round bottom layer and the "butt" is a 6 inch carved layer. I can usually serve 38 - 40 people with this size by cutting 1"x2"'4" slices. I cut my round cakes straigh across (like indydebi shows in her cateritsimple blog). You could probably do a 12 inch round and have plenty of servings. The legs and feet are made of RKT.
Hope this helps! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks Christy0722! I was thinking of trying it with a sheet cake. I'm guessing it would be almost the same with the pregnant belly cake too, right?

Depending on the size of your sheet cake (I do a 12 x 18 single layer and get 40 slices). If you do a double layered sheet cake, you'd end up with about 80 slices if you cut them 1"x2"x4". HTH!!
