Pan you use to make a full sheet cake!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I need help making commercial sized full sheet cakes that I plan on cutting up into cubes for samples, and I need to make 5 of them. By next week. EEEK!!!

I am attempting this for a bridal show, but I've never actually MADE a full sheet before. I though I just used a regular full sheet pan but I realized that the sheet pans are not that tall so I basically was only able to bake up a really really big pancake today. icon_mad.gif What do I use? Is there some sort of insert or collar, or is it a special pan that is 2" tall? I've looked online and all I have ever seen are regular hotel sheet pans, not 2" tall cake pans in that dimention.

If there is an easier way to do this besides baking an 18x24, I'm all ears!

Thanks,

Jen

The one and only time I did a full sheet I just put two 12 X 18 together.

I have only done a 1/4 sheetcake. I would do exactly what the other person said about putting two 12x18 together. From what I'm told it is hard to handle a full sheet cake

I thought a half sheet was 11x15?

I just use my regular square pans. Two 14" squares, with only half the usual amount of batter has been all I've ever needed. You're only cutting bite sized chunks anyways. I don't put more than a good size bite in my cups. Squirt some icing on top, bam. Done. Two 14" square pans, half filled. Do the math on how many little servings you get from that. A LOT.

And your question was very disappointing, might I add. I was fuly expecting to see you asking about making a sheet cake for an order, and I was going to laugh at you.

Are you using a commercial oven? A full size sheet usually does not fit in a standard oven.
I bake in a full pan with pan exteners.
Its a big cake.
