I am making a 16x16 cake and I would like to make it half chocolate, half vanilla. Does anyone know how I can easily divide the cake in half to to bake it that way? I don't want to make two separate cakes and then put them together. Thanks

just tip the pan up on one side and pour in one batter and then pour the other batter on the other side as you slowly lower the pan.

I make a TON of 1/2 sheet cakes and they're almost always 1/2 one flavor and 1/2 another......I've even done them in 3 and 4 flavors.

The cake police aren't going to come with sirens blaring if it's not a perfectly straight and perfect line down the center of the two flavors!

LOL @ police sirens!

You can fold some foil and hold it in the middle and pour both sides up and then lift out the foil.

Yeah, i just take a deep breath and pour both flavors in toward the middle, then pour out to the sides. sometimes i swirl the middle to make a 3rd flavor. i used to stress out about it, but now i don't.

I used the foil in the middle technique. I think it would have been helpful to remove the foil and lightly swirl together, since my cake sort of split between the flavors. Of course with the icing, no one knew but me.
