How big is a full sheet cake? I am baking a cake for my Aunt's wedding and she request a full sheet cake? I don't have a full sheet baking pan, all I have is 9x13. How would I make a full sheet out of that?

They're like 26 x 18? So roughly four 9 x 13's put together would probably work.

Just as a thought......You might want to clarify how many people she's serving or how big (dimensions) of a cake she really wants. A lot of people have a misconception of what a "full" sheet cake is. One 9x13 one layer cake serves 20-24, so a full sheet would serve about 100.

Thanks Cakeuhlicious I think that might have to be it because I have no other way of doing it.

dmo4ab, there's going to be 200+ people there, I am only baking the Grooms cake, the Bride will have her own cake as well, and not sure how big her cake will be.

Make perfect sense then. Sorry, I didn't read closely enough to notice it was for a wedding. icon_redface.gif

That's okay dmo4ab.

now my other question is, where can I buy a full sheet cake board? I'd called local stores like Hobby lobby and Party City and none has it. =(

if you can't find a cake board big enough for the cake. You could use a foam core board. You can find them in the art section at Michaels or Hobby lobby. Good luck!
