I made a number cake recently and had the same problem. So I used this number template:

I used 8 inch cakes instead of 6-inch and stacked 2 of them. I think it was too much cake to be honest! So you may try making it with the 6-inch cakes and make it 2 layers. You can see my numbers in my pics, the finished numbers came out to be about 13 inches. Hope that helps!

I just made a 90 for 45 people and I made 3D letters on top of a 2layer quarter sheet cake. It was plenty. I bought the CK plastic pans on eBay for the top.
