I've been asked to make one "big" and one "small" - to feed about 65....what size pans would you use? I would prefer to make rounds in lieu of sheets...what do you think?

Thank you!

Are the cakes supposed to tie in with each other in any way or be totally separate? What size pans do you own?

An 8" and a 12" would give you about 60 party-sized servings (80 wedding servings).

A 6" (the smallest I'd ever go) and a 14" would give you 75 party servings.

If you don't have a serving chart, here are a few:

In case you haven't seen it before, here's the industry standard serving chart for 8 cu. in. servings:
