I just do one choc. and one white each in a half sheet pan, then butt them against eachother. Hope that helps.

i do a full sheet cake using 2 pans (and put them together on the board), so just make one white and one chocolate

A full sheet pan would be 12x36 OR 24x18. Do you have a pan that big? Will it fit in your oven? I doubt it.
You make two seperate cakes - each 12x18 - one choco & one white and place them on one board side by side.

Thanks for everyones reply.. I did two 1/2 sheets before.. and it seemed to 'sage' in the middle where I put the two cakes together.... suggestions on that?

That usually mean you need a stronger support.......put 2 or even 3 boards together. Also make sure they are level.

How many cake mixes do you use in a 12x18 pan? Duncan Hines says to use 13 1/2 cups. Each cake mix makes 5 1/2 cups. This would come out to be 2 1/2 boxes of cake mix. Do you guys use 3 whole boxes of cake mix or 2 1/2? Also, where do you get cake boxes for full sheet cakes? I went to Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and Wal-Mart, and the biggest that they have is 19x14. Thank you for answering my questions.

Be sure and measure out your cake mix,they have cut back on the amount they are putting in the boxes these days.

I always use three but that's because mine are 1/2 white and 1/2 chocolate. 2 white, 1 chocolate. Just what I do. We have a store here called deans party mania and it is the only place I can purchase my cake boxes. For some reason there are not that many places where I live. I only wish we had a Michaels...

also wanted to add, never had any over fill issues or anything...
