Our Cub Scout pack has their Blue & Gold banquet coming up very soon. Due to the size of our group, we are going with just dessert (cake), and then our program. It takes TOO LONG to feed them dinner and still have our program/bridging, etc. My question pertains to the cakes. One mom priced Costco cakes and they told her a "half sheet cake" was about $18, served 48. She told me today they said that a serving size was 1.5" x 1.5". As my 10yr old said, "That's a CRUMB!" Based on those numbers, I calculate their "half-sheet" cake is really a 9x13", which is a quarter-sheet-cake in my book. There is another mom in our pack who used to bake and has the pans to make a half-sheet cake. I've got to verify with her the size of the servings, and her pans, but I believe she's more in line with what a standard half would be- about 12x18 or close to it. Her serving size piece, based on her email, I believe would then be about 2"x 2.25". Still small, but better. I could live with it. I would PREFER a 2"x3" size piece. It just means making a couple more cakes. I went ahead and bought a pan myself from Amazon. Question: (1) Am I crazy?? I was thinking if she'll make 4 of them, I can make 3 or 4 and her sister (another scout mom) -makes 1-2 smaller sized. We divide and conquer. (2) What key things would I need? Cakeboards to put them on. And a good recipe. Anything else? I have the PC Spatulas for icing. We aren't decorating, since they'll be cut/plated before guests arrive anyway. I'll get HER recipes for her version of cake and frosting, but thought I'd ask if any of you have a great recipe?- that is easy, and allergy friendly (IE- I can buy a box-cake mix and doctor it up. I know of one brand of cakes that are "nut-free".) (3) and is a 2x3" piece of cake reasonable?? We're talking 300 people, but it just is crazy to do something less than 2x2 to me. Why bother?! Standard cake guides show 1.5" x 2", that's one bite more than the Costco...which should be called "Petit Four Mini-cakes", not sheet cake. Pppuhhhlleaaase.
