I seen a video some where on how to make a 1/2 chocolate and 1/2 vanilla sheet cake.... ( 1 layer cake)..

Don't remember if I seen it on this site on some where else. If anyone can share the technique or knows how to find the video it would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks a mill...

I've never seen the video, but I've done it before. I propped the cake pan up on the cake box and poured in the yellow. Since the pan is propped, it stays on one side. Then I mixed up the chocolate and started pouring it in the other side. As I got about half or more of the batter in, I put the pan level on the table and finished pouring it. (It doesn't matter what you pour in first.)

I've seen another hint to put each batter in a pitcher and pour them in at the same time, pouring at the same rate. I didn't have 2 pitchers handy, so I couldn't try it out.

Hope this helps!

Thanks shannon100, that sounds exactly as how I remember the video.

I am going to attempt this on a cake due next weekend...

I put in a alum foil "divider" in the middle, or whereever you want it split. Pour in one flav, then pour in the next, and remove the divider.

When I do a 2 flavor cake, I just 'marble' down the center 2 inches or so....that way they get 3 flavors!

i have even done three colors in a half sheet pan. i did recruit hubby to pour one color of batter, swirl between each color. do this all the time, never have any problem and the swirl pieces are great for people who can not decide which color they want.

I wondered how the store did this.

There is a CC member who made a You Tube video...can't remember who it was but I saved her website on my home computer. I will check back tonight and post for you. icon_smile.gif

Thanks Karenm0712, I knew I had seen a video of this technique somewhere. It was probably a link I had clicked on from this sight.

Thanks again...

that seems like doing it the hard way.
every place i ever worked...if they wanted a half and half....we just put 2 cakes together on the board....with some icing along the seam for glue.

prolly over half the sheetcakes i do are 1/2 and 1/2

i just bake up a bunch of cakes...cut em up and reassemble.

Thanks for the link. That looks very easy. I guess that's the science of baking! LOL
