when you all do different size sheet cakes do you do one layer? or two?

I have always thought of sheet cakes as single layers. To me the name implies ''a sheet of cake'' but I do make them double layers if the customer needs more cake. Some times I put a filling of fruit or bavarian cream or just icing between the layers.

It depends on how many servings are needed. A lot of people only want a single layer for a small group.

Ditto what dmo4ab said.

Mine are single layers, but all split and filled.

Mostly just single layered.

Though occasionally at home (and at Wal-mart), I'll do a filled one. Not super common for me though.

I know it's no longer considered a sheet cake - but mine are usually double layered. It just looks better.

I have a three inch Magic Line half sheet pan. My cake gets about 2.5". I torte and fill all of them (slide a cake board in between). It is tall and looks nice when cut. It makes a really nice cake for a crowd.

I do all mine 2 layers, bake 2 seperate layers and then filling in the middle. People like that its different, it looks different and you're getting more cake than at the grocery store
