I'm going to be making my first sheet cake with a tropical theme. I plan to use two 12x18 pans and put them together for the full sheet cake. Since this requires a large amount of batter, does anyone have a recipe that would work well for this type of cake?
Any suggestions would be a great help!
What flavor are you looking for? There are a vast number of recipes available under the recipe tab at the top of the screen.
Have you baked other large cakes before? Most good cake recipes can be baked in large pans without difficulty. I usually lower my baking temp by at least 25 degrees and use flower nails to help promote even baking.
Some people use bake-even strips or heating cores, etc... I don't think they make much difference.
most recipes can be doubled safely. when i mad my first 12X18 i just made double batches. i would also recommend using a flower nail instead of bake even strips, since the pan is so big u would prolly need to attach 4 or 5 strips together
Why do people use flower nail for, when baking a sheet cake??
To try to cook even do u don't get a dome
thanks for the info. I appreciated!
