I have a co-worker who is turning 23 next month and she wants a cake in the shape of a "23" to feed 50. Any ideas on how to do it?? I mean, arranging the cake in that shape can't be that difficult but how big do the numbers need to be to feed 50? And how many 11X15 cakes do I need to make? I'm baffled, math has never been my easiest subject! Any tips would be appreciated!

Oh thank you so much! Even though I probably won't buy the pan it sure does give me an idea of how to do it. Thanks again!

You can put the cake on top of another cake to get the servings you need. That way, you can do the 23 at a size that is comfortable for you and still make sure there are enough servings.

I would bake up 2 of your 11x15s and place them on a fullsheet board (well, make it at least 2 boards glued together) then carve it down some. I copied some sheet cakes off the internet that I'll e-mail to you to see what I'm talking about.
