Math help needed to convert and increase recipe

somervilleoldtimer | Nov 15, 2013 07:27 PM

I have many talents, but math is not one. Will someone please help me figure out how to go from a dense cake baked in an 8 x 2 round pan to a much larger cake baked in an 11 x 16 x 2 half-sheet pan? The first served 8 - 10, and I was going to double the recipe and make it two layers to serve 18, but now there will be 35 people who will want cake so it's back to a sheet cake, but big!! (It's the Marzipan Cake [Rombauer] on the left side of this page http://books.google.com/books?id=tbyW...)
