Okay, so I decided to undertake making my daughter's christening cake that is this Sunday...I baked yesterday, two 11 x 15 cakes for the bottom and a 12 x 18 for the top...both sheet cakes...I am having 71 adults and 17 children...I let them cool and deciced to cut and ice them today and put them in the fridge. When I cut the bottom cakes and put them together, they were totally uneven! I thought about trying to make it even, but decided against it, as I fear that I will ruin both of them...anyway, my bottom tier has now become my top..Will there be enough cake???? I am freaking out right about now!!!! Plus, I now have to try to manage putting botties, a hat and a christening dress on the top tier..Ugh...I'm getting so upset and depressed! I did taste the cake, though and they do taste yummy!
I think the servings will be fine. Wilton's chart shows 98 servings for a 12 X 18, 2 layer. Half of that (for a one layer cake) is 49 and that's just for one of your cakes.
..I never thought to go into Wilton to check...Thanks...Of course everything that can go wrong is..My fondant is laying as perfectly as I would like, there are some imperfections that I see...I will have a hat, dress and booties covering the cake, so I am hoping that A LOT of my imperfections will be hidden...Thanks...I feel better about the servings....
You're welcome. I just happened to know that number off the top of my head because I was designing a cake that size yesterday. Otherwise, numbers just fly right out of my head. LOL
