That is going to be a HUGE cake! I agree with your game plan by laying them side by side. I can get about 50 slices out of a 1/2 sheet cake (18x13) when cutting at the restaurant. The cake was about 3 inches high.

Not sure where you are baking but full sized sheet pans would be ideal for this type of project.

Good luck!

My suggestion is to increase your idea by making a total of 4 *layers* each 12x18; two are places side-by-side, then topped with the other two so you final cake will be 24x18x4. This will give you about 215 servings. Another idea is to make two seperate 12x18x4 cakes (each a field) and display with the cuppies between them on the table. To get a few more servings add a football - an oval cake scuplted into shape or buy a football pan.
Be super sure you use a thick board - in order of my preference: one cut from wood; (at least) 1/2" foam core; or three full sheet cake boards glue together.
Next: make *sure* it will fit through all doors/hallways etc this cake must go through when delivered.

I once made a huge jungle cake (don't remember exact size now) but when delivered to a home it had to go down a narrow stairwell to the basement; we had to turn the board almost sideways to get it down there icon_sad.gif
