Hi To All
Is it more hassle than help to bake two 11X15 sheet cake and cut them into a 10x10 and 5x5 square to be stacked instead of baking two 10x10 and two 5x5 square layers? Its for a wedding cake but I don't want to make it difficult on myself since I do have all the pans. I was just trying to save baking time. Thanks

I think I would just use the square pans-
but it's sorta a toss up!!

I'd use the pans. I don't like stacking cakes I've had to cut into the right size..they're not as stable without the nice baked edges to me.

Bake three 10x10 layers. Two of them go together to make one tier.

On the third one: Cut it into quarters. You now have four 5x5 cakes. Use two to make your tier for your cake ..... save the other two for your samplings or for a last minute small cake order.

I think this is less cutting/carving for you, plus you're a little ahead with the two extra's in the freezer.

I agree with the other posters....working in sections is much easier and more stable!

I just saw where you said you had all the pans ... which makes my suggestion pretty stupid! icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif If you have the 5" pan, I'd bake in the 5" pan.

great idea....i have square 14, 10, and 7 but no 6 or 5 so baking the extra 10 will do the trick...thanks everybody
