Hi there,
I'm getting ready to make my DS his bday cake. Anyway I need to serve about 20 people and would like to make a sheet cake. I figured I could use my jelly roll pans and make 2 cakes in them and then layer them. But I can't find any recipes to do something like this!

Am I off base? Does anyone have a recipe to do this?

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I saw the Barefoot Contessa make it the other day on tv. It's made in a 12 x 18 jelly roll pan, and it baked up nice and full, flat top too. Of course, that's tv! Here's a link:

I do this all the time and find that most cake recipes (mixes and box) work fine. For a deeper cake, I make 3 jellyroll cakes. I like the look and I love the filling.

Cool - so it turns out okay? How hard is it to turn the cake out?
If you use a box mix - do you split a mix between two pans or one mix per pan?

My other option is to order a heat core and a wilton 12x18 pan from amazon today - with my prime shipping it would be here in time. But if I can do the jellyroll I would rather save my $$ for now and buy the pans later.

What do you think - should I attempt a jellyroll pan to bake layers of cake or should I just order the pan from amazon.

When I use a box mix, its one box per pan. I have never had an overflow yet.
