I am making three full sheet cakes coming up. I only have one 11 x 15 right now and so...I am guessing I need a 12 x 18 half sheet and make two of them and stick them together for a full or is there a full sheet cake pan? also...where do I find boards and boxes that BIG to cover a full sheet cake?

Where can I get a 12 x 18 pan that is good but also not too pricey?

any tips on making a full sheet cake? I am nervous since its so big!

Wilton makes a 12x18 pan. If you have a Joann's or Hobby Lobby by you you can use their 40% coupon and it won't be too bad.

I did one like that. Boards - I used foam boards or plywood from Home Depot.
Boxes, Party America sells a full sheet box.

You don't say where you are from so I don't know if any of these stores are by you.

Best way I can explain foam board is the like the display boards students use for science fairs and the such.

You can pick these up from Hobby Lobby or Michaels as well! icon_biggrin.gif

Magic Line makes a true half sheet pan - 12x16

Full sheet pan is 16x24, but measure your oven, most home ovens will not allow this pan to fit (make sure you add an extra inch for the lips on the edges - 17x25)

That's great advice, never would have thought of it myself icon_redface.gif

Thanks!

intotheoven.com has awesome prices on fat daddios sheets and their shipping is way low.

Even for the 16 inch pan, measure your oven.

We have a double oven (which I adore having), but it's more narrow than the standard size - my half sheet pans only JUST squeek in.
