Okay people i have a quick question I am baking three full sheet cakes for a wedding, when baking for a wedding how tall do you usually make your cakes?

I have two inch pans and they want filling as well. Would a two inch cake cut and torted work? is that the standard size?

I've done sheet cakes as augments to the main wedding cake. Because my main cake layers are 4" tall, I have the sheet cake also 4 inches tall. I'm not sure if that's industry standard but I've found that having the sheet cake slices closely resemble the main cake makes the guests feel that they haven't been "cheated" if they get the sheet cake rather than the main cake.

I've never seen two inch deep full sheet pans (16"x24").
Are you using the bakeable cardboard tray inserts?

I cut and tort the single layer (2" cake) it works fine and it easy to travel with. I have a wilton pay, I would consider it a 3/4 sheet pan.....or you can use 9x12 pans and put cake side by make splitting the cakes easier too.
