Hello! Okay so I'm pretty sure a 1/4 sheet cake is a 9x13 and 1/2 is 11x15 but what is the size for a full sheet cake? Is it 12x18? Or is it two 11x15 pans put together or something completely different? Thanks!!

Ah, this is why I don't like the term full sheet, quarter sheet or whatever, because EVERYONE refers to each size differently. That's also why when someone ask me how much a 'full sheet' is I ask how many servings do you need and explain that I ask because those terms mean something different for everyone.

FOR ME these are the following sheet size/names:
1/4 - 9x13
1/3 - 11x15
1/2 - 12x18
2/3 - 22x15 (two 11x15 pushed together)
Full - 24x18 (two 12 x 18 pushed together)

Mine are:

1/4 = 9 X 13
1/2 = 11 X 15
Full = 22 X 15 (two 1/2s put together)

I use the terms only because most non-cake folk know them and can get a general idea of what size the cake will be.

In the baking industry (bakeries), ccr03 is exactly correct.

I'm not sure I understand your question.

I consider a 1/4 sheet cake a 9" x 13" and so forth.

Does that answer your question?
