Hi,  I have been asked to make a number 50 cake for about 50 - 60 people.  Could you guys help with me with the pan sizes that i'd need to make the number 5 and 0. I was thinking of baking them in either a rectangular cake pan and then carving the number's out, but am sure sure how big or small a pan i'd need to make the cakes for a crowd of 50 - 60 people. If it is even possible.  I was thinking about even renting the number pans, but they are a bit small and im thinking i would have to go like 8 layers high, if I used them lol, probably not going to work.   Please help!

AI'm not sure how many the number pans serve but you can always have a larger cake underneath.

This.....or depending on how much work you wanted to put into it, add in some mini cakes or cupcakes to compliment the large cake.

Just a thought. if there are 60 people all wont eat cake. from my experience, these figures serves about 25 pcs each (coffee size. th e nos. are about 13" in height. if you dont want to use the  no. 5 and No. o pans you can make 13x11or 15x13 rectangular pans and 0579b342_modulescopperminealbumsuserpics56121numbers.jpegcut out the the numbers
