What size cake box would I need for a 12x18 cake? I ask because I know I would need a bigger cake board than 12x18. Would it be a 14x20? Do they make this size?  Thank you in advance

I order my boxes from from BRPBoxShop and they make 19"x14"x4" that will work and 19"x14"x6" and 26"x18"x4". HTH

I’ve used both board and box sold as a 1/2 size   There is very little room for borders but it works:)   You can always cut a little off like 1/4”

Don't forget to allow for the size of your board.

I see that there is conflicting information on what size cakes feed 40 for sheet cakes. What size would you suggest? Thank you

Also would be doing a 2 layer sheet cake. So would going with 2-9x13 feed 40?

I'm so sorry for all my many questions, just I never did but one small sheet cake before. 

I think I would make a 1/2 sheet cake torted to feed 40?

A two layer 9x13 (x4”) would be cut in “wedding servings” slices of 1x2x4 so it should give you 48 slices   A12x18x2 (single layer) torted would be cut in servings of 2 x2 x2 yielding 54   How either is actually cut might be different but that’s how we come up w/the numbers for size/servings & pricing   The total amount of cake in each way of serving is the same   (1x2x4 vs 2x2x2)  .... sooo do you want a bigger surface to decorate?  Does the client want cake left over?  Let them decide

such a smart lady!  it doesn't matter what size your cake is,  It's the size of the board that you put it on.
