Hi everyone, I’m new to posting here but have found many helpful hints on this site over the years! I have hd a request for a sheet cake to serve 35 people for an 80th birthday party. What size would you all go with? I am leaning towards a 12x18, 2 thinner layers instead of one torted. They want a lemon filling but I’ll sort that out later lol. 

Thanks for any suggestions, knowledge and input!

The customer is going to have to decide between a 9x13 for 24 servings 2x2 or a 12x16 for 48 servings    Or they might try cutting the smaller size cake say 1&1/2” to get closer to 35   If you make the 9x13 size 4” tall (bake 2 & stack) w/filling  it can  be cut into 1x2x4 slices (same amount of cake!)  for about 48 servings     There just isn’t a sheet that gives 35 servings   What about a 10x10 square?  That gives 35

11 x 15 = 35-37 2" tall servings (read the wedding-size servings on the guide linked above).
a.k.a. 1/3 sheet.
