One of the most common problems with making a sheet cake for your event is trying to decide exactly how many people a certain size sheet cake can serve and how many layers are required. This is one of the first questions new bakers have when attempting to bake these confusing creations and the answer is entirely dependent upon who is asked the question.
For a shortcut, remember that a 9-inch round cake pan holds about 6 cups (if the batter is 1 1/2 inches deep). A 13-by-9-inch pan holds 12 cups. And a standard cupcake pan, with 1/2 cup batter in each of six cups, holds 3 cups. So a two-layer cake batter should convert easily to 12 cupcakes or a sheet cake.
