I've seen different pictures of this type of cake where it's torted and built up to 8 or more thin layers of cake with filling in between. However, I've only seen this as a round cake. I'd like to make an oblong, 6 layered cake but not have to go out a buy a special oblong pan. Can this be done by baking a sheet cake using a 26x18x1 sheet pan then cutting it down the middle (length wise) and then frost, stack, etc. Here's an idea of what I'm trying to learn how to do (it would be the chocolate and white cake)

Any guidance this would be baked and built would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Absolutely you can bake the cake in sheet pans then cut and stack. Just measure carefully!

Those can be made from sheet cakes! They look so divine in the pictures on the link you posted icon_smile.gif The Ren Festival has mile high cakes and I always look forward to a slice icon_smile.gif
