I'm doing a baby shower cake for my cousin and my aunt said about 60 people are coming. How big of a cake should I make? It's a Noah's Ark theme and she gave me a paper plate to duplicate on the cake. I'm having a brain freeze right now, is there a chart online that tells what size cake to make for xx number of people?

There's one at www.earlenescakes.com and I think baking911.com has one as well. Wilton has one, but seems to not be as accurate as the others. Janice

If you are planning on doing a sheet cake, the wilton 12x18 pan would probably work good. icon_razz.gif

icon_wink.gif you could probably also try the 11x15 sheet pan size and make two layers too.

Good Luck.......

Serving portions depend upon several factors, who is cutting the cake and if the cake will be served as desert or just the classic wedding cake portion. Have in mind that six cups of batter serves about 19-20 people. I always follow these servings char, it works for me and never had anybody complaining about being short of cake, Some pans do not serve exactly 60 portions but I rather to be on the safe side even if I give my customers a couple of extra portions (no big deal for me). For 60 servings I use the following pans: a 14" round, a 12" square, a 9x13 sheet, 7- 5/8 oval, 15" petal. HTH
