Birthday cake for a large crowd?

sljones | Aug 28, 2010 06:41 PM

We're planning a double birthday party for a crowd of near 40, and I'm struggling to figure out how to handle the cake.

I'm an experienced cook, but haven't baked many cakes. I'm looking for kid-friendly, crowd-pleasing cakes and am considering the Double Chocolate Layer Cake from Epicurious, Dorrie Greenspan's Celebration cake and/or a carrot cake.

So any ideas? Can I double any of the cakes? How about freezing, does that compromise the flavor/texture? I feel like I can pull of two cakes for the day, but not more than that. I know the Dob Choc Cake has tons of comments but I'm not able to sift through them all.

Thanks for any advice!
