How big is too big?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi.  I'm making a baby shower cake for a friend this weekend.  The cake I'm making is here:

There will be 50 people in attendance, so I was thinking I would use a 14" cake for the buggy with 8" wheels.   When I put the pans out on a cake board, it looks huge to me.  Almost silly big.  I then looked at it with a 12" buggy and 6" wheels.  I'm now at a loss, which should I do????  If I do the 12" buggy I could do a sheet cake to make up the additional servings.  Could someone give me their opinion?  Is 14" too big????

 

Thanks!
Christina

If you did a single-layer 14" and two single-layer 6" cakes, you wouldn't need an additional sheet cake.

CWR, Thank you for replying.  I don't think I was clear in my question.  What I want to know is this...is the cake optically too big?  Would a 14" look funny or even ridiculous?  Would going smaller be better and then do a sheet cake too? 

Thanks again!

IMO, no, no, and no.

Don't  forget, you'll be carving it too. the pans always look bigger than the finished product.

Thank you All,   I'm starting to think 14" will be just fine!
