I would bake 2 large sheet cakes and carve from there.

I just made a controller about two weeks ago using a single half-sheet, cut in half to make two 12" by 9" by 2" tall layers. Once covered in ganache and fondant, I'm pretty sure it would feed at least 20 people. Using two full half-sheets would give you more than enough servings, I think.

Yes, that will be too small. Even before carving, a sq 10x4 is only 34 servings - AND the shape of the controller would be too deep for it's width. I would start with a half sheet (12x18x4"). At 3" deep it is 54 servings before carving, or 72 servings at 4" deep.
