You do know that you are asking someone to do a lot of work for you. And frankly you should try and research how to do this yourself if you are going to be in the cake business. This is asking a lot of someone.

What size cake pans does that fill? How many cups of batter does it make?

From there you figure out what size cake you need to make to feed 60 people.

I don't know the science behind scratch baking and reducing recipes. But if you know you only need a 1/3rd or a 1/2 of the recipe, then you can just do the math to figure it out.
