What size pan should I use to make a football shaped cake for 20 ppl? The cake will be two layers with filling. I thought about using a 10in round and cutting 1-2 inch strip down the middle and piecing the two halves back together. It just seems that there will not be enough cake for 20 ppl. Thought about using a square pan not sure what size? I may be over thinking this but any advice is greatly appreciated!!
Doesn't a 10x4 r serve 39? Then remov ing the center strip only removes about 2-3 servings. Personally I don't think a 10r is going to look like a football. You would have to trim down the sides - removing another serving or 2 to get a rounded football look. So the 10x4 still should give 20 nice sized servings.
