if you're not used to flipping a baked cake that big...you'll be flipping it twice, remember, unless you ice on the underside. It would be a shame to learn a hard lesson with the birthday version.

I've make 14" circles and a 16" heart that I carved out of two half sheets...THAT was fun.

From the stuff I read, 12" circle was the largest you wanted to bake without a nail in the center. I think several of those commenters were using a pin to help the cake center bake flat (so they didn't have to torte the cake), since many were then deferring to cake strips. Personally, I'd use both: Cake strips to help it bake flat and pins spaced near the center to help disperse heat.
