I really have a dumb question to ask. I have been baking for a while now, and am not to sure as to how big a sheet cake is. I several large pans, but when I go to the store to purchase the sheet boards, they seem to be too big for the actual cake that I have made. If any one can help me, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,

SHEET PANS:
Notes:
1. there is no standard!. No matter where you go or who you ask, everyone has their own version as to what constitutes what size
2. choose what sizes you wish to make - make up a dummy to display as an example of a quarter/half/full sheet [something they can hold in their hands].
3. have a cutting chart for the sizes you have chosen, together with a calculation of how many servings per cake
4. make sure your tins will fit in your oven.

ALL of these examples have been collected from numerous sites on the Internet. Lots agreed with some: lots don't match anyone: and lots make up their own [especially when they make and manufacture cake tins/pans.].

The annoying/worrying trend is companies that are pushing small slab tins as "sheet pans" - they would not produce the required number of serves for a business situation.
