I did a "search" for my answer but nothing popped up. My question is this.....is it possible to make a 2-layer 13x9 sheetcake? I don't want to torte it, I want to make 2 separate cakes, add a filling, and frost it nicely. Possible? Or am I just asking for trouble?

yes you can. make sure your board is strong enough and charge more, cause you have now doubled the servings.

This thread might be helpful....

Everything you need to know to bake, assemble and decorate tiered/stacked/layer cakes:


Above thread has popular CC recipes for: crusting American b/c's, doctored cake mix and fondant.

Also has link to illustrated common cake support systems with complete directions.

In addition, there are links to the Wilton site for cake preparation and servings guides. If you check out the preparation/servings guides you will see batter requirements for all cake pans by size and depth (including sheets). Also gives recommended baking temps. and times.

There's also decorating help (how to smooth and so much more).


BTW, the WASC cake in the above thread is great when making larger or multiple cakes. A 1/2 recipe (use 1 DH white cake mix) yields a tad over 7 cups which is perfect for a 13x9x2 layer.

A full recipe makes a tad over 14 cups which is perfect for a 12x18x2 layer.

I just posted a 2-layer 12x18 cake, so a 9x13 will be "a piece of cake!"

It's no different than doing a 2-layer 8" round, or 10" round. Just think of it as it's just a different shape, that's all. thumbs_up.gif

I've done lots of 2-layer sheet cakes. I always level them first before layering. I find them to be easier to layer and get straight than the little 4" or 6" cakes. thumbs_up.gif

Hi !

This one is a cake I made my little boy it was easy it is 2 9x13 cakes { with a pinapple , coolwhip , pudding filling . It was at least 100 degrees outside that day but it did good , I did'nt even use dowles but I should have just in case { so maybe straws or dowles in the middle } ,, but it was just a family party . It does feed alot . Ps it ws quite taller than I had expected .
