How about making two 12x18 half sheets?
Is your oven big enough for a full sheet?

Good point about checking if your oven is big enough. Ask me how I know... icon_redface.gif

I would talk the customer into getting a double layer 1/2 sheet-it will serve the same amount. I've made PLENTY of full sheets in my earlier years at the bakery. Now, I absolutely refuse...it's next to impossible to make a full sheet look pretty. You can probably order one on-line from a supplier- but would you really use it often enough to justify the expense? Plus then there's the headache of finding a full sheet cake board and the boxes too... I can tell you I've never made a full sheet that I was ever happy with the end result.

Hi Madame, I was actually thinking of this, do you mean a two tier?? My oven is not big enough to hold a full sheet cake.

A double-layer 1/2 sheet is just like any other layer cake (two 2" tall layers for a total of 4" tall), also known as a kitchen cake.

A two tier is typically two (2) layer cakes that are assembled with one another.

double layer as in a 4" tall 1/2 sheet, that's what I mean jelly bean.

I'm sorry, but I was under the impression that a half sheet will only serve up to 64???

hmmm not sure about that amount...typically a 1/2 sheet serves about 45-50...as in a 2" tall regular 1/2 sheet....making it a 2 layer (not tier) makes that sheet 4"tall and double the cake=double the servings, which brings you to around 100 servings.

If you layer it, to the 4 inches high, you can cut 1 inch wide slices so they are the 1x2x4 instead of 2x2x2. Same amount of cake, it's just stacked on top of each other. So a double layer 1/2 sheet should give you the same number of servings as a single layer full sheet. They are just tall and thin slices instead of squares.

Plus then you can put yummy filling in there! icon_smile.gif
