Hope someone can help me out. I've heard so many differing answers. I'm making a cake for tomorrow ( I know a little late to ask). And I don't have a specific head count...should be around 100 (church event so don't know how many are showing up). Probably 50/50 mix of adults and kids. I have a 12x18x2 cake pan and I'm going to make two. one chocolate and layer them. How many people will this feed. For one layer I've read from 20 people to 54 people. I also made 50 cupcakes. So If someone has any experience and an idea of how many people that cake will feed will help out a lot!

Oh I also made a 3d care (wilton pan) which will go on top so I'm sure that will feed a few as well.

12x18 = 216
If you are doing 2 layers, then the cake will be 4" high, so the pcs will be 1"x2"x4"
216/2 = 108

A 2-layer 12x18 will serve 108.

The character pans generally serve about 12. Along with the cupcakes, you will have enough to serve 170 people.

According to the Wilton guide, the 12x18 (two layers) will feed 72 party servings (1.5 x 2 slices) or 98 wedding servings (1 x 2 slices). With that cake plus the 3D cake and cupcakes that will be plenty!
