Ok, so I watch Amazing Wedding Cakes and notice Cake Alchemy using pans that look more like a 1 in or 1 1/2 in deep sheet cake pan. Is this possible or are my eyes playing tricks on me and if so is it just a jelly roll pan?

I'd call those jelly roll pans. I have 2 non-stick ones that deep from Calphalon. Got them cheap at an outlet and I love them for cookies, but I've never baked a cake layer in them.

Buddy Valastro uses them sometimes, too. They bake 1- 1.5" layers of "sponge" cake and cut the shapes and sizes they need. Baking such thin layers means no central hump, so they don't have to level the layers. They build up a tier out of 3 or 4 layers and filling.

Not sure what you saw on the show, but I use european sheet pans, which are much sturdier than regular sheet pans, but best of all they have straight 1" sides. They are perfect for cakes, and especially bars.

I've ordered from Lloyds Pans and their great quality & service.
