That is ALWAYS my question after I've already prepared and baked the cakes. Then I dwell on the question and I start to panic. I am baking a 12" round cake - 3 layers of chocolate cake 2 layers of oreo filling, for my son's Pre-school "Stepping Up" ceremony. There are 18 kids and assuming each child brings 2 adults (parents grandparents are all invited). Is that enough? When I asked the teacher she wasn't sure. A large cake. I've made a 14" the same way for another party I had with 60 something people and there was a lot of cake left over.
I am tempted to make vanilla cupcakes.. justifying it in my head by saying that not everyone likes chocolate... what would you do??
Please make let me know what you think so I can feel better.
