Hi Everyone,

I swear the pan I used last night to bake a cake was bigger than my 1/2 sheet. Can someone tell me the measurements that are on the bottom of a wilton 1/2 sheet pan. The pan I used took 3 boxes of cake mix and was so dence, that I had to throw away the cake. I added chocolate pudding powder to my chocolate mix. I think that had something to do with it. But I swear i am missing a pan and it is my 1/2 sheet. icon_cry.gif

I refuse to use the terms "half" and "quarter" sheet.

But, that said, a half sheet is generally the 12x18 (which is half of a commercial baking pan, which is 18x24). It takes 3 mixes. I tried the "add pudding and an extra egg" once .... my official taste testers told me "don't you EVER do that again!" They said it was too dense and heavy .... they hated it.

Thanks a bunch, I am going to give in another try. Do you bake yours at 325? and for how long. I ususally put a rose nail in it. I am going to do chocolate again, but I don't want it dry. Thanks again

In a home oven, I bake at 325 with baking strips. In my comm'l convection oven, I bake at 275 with baking strips.

I agree w/ Debi.....I hate the terms "1/2 sheet cake" There is no way in Hell that I would ever make a full sheet cake....YIKES.

I have a girl that I make cakes for alot and she is always saying to me....how about a 1/4 sheet cake for this or a 1/2 sheet cake for that....yadda yadda yah. I just say...pick your size 9x13, 11x15 or 12x18.

Groceries stores have "sheet cakes"....not me icon_wink.gif
