I have never managed this successfully
better to make a smaller sponge IMO

No - it's better to make a smaller cake

make a 2-egg round one now, then another 2-egg round one tomorrow and stack them with buttercream smile

Would a 3 egg sponge be enough to feed 25 anyway? It wouldn't round ours but perhaps we're greedy grin

I make a 4 egg cake just for the four of us - will a 3 egg cake really feed 25?!
