A 9" pan has a volume of 8-10 cups (depending on if round, square or spring form).
An 8x4" loaf pan has about 4c capacity; so 2 of those might do. Or maybe 8" round pabs, but they'd be bigger than you need (about 6 cup each).
Or, you could make the original, cut in two layers and present each as a cake...frosted or dusted with icing sugar.

8" round if 2" high will hold 6c each, but if 1.5" high, will hold 4c.
6" round will hold 4c each.
