I've read both 9x13 and 11x15 for quarter sheet sizes. Which do you use?

7x11 is a 1/4 sheet, 11x14 or 11x15 is a 1/2 sheet, and 14x22 is a full sheet. 9x13 is the most popular size used by home bakers. There is also an 12x18 sheet pan.

9X13 is a 1/4 sheet
11x15 is a 1/3 sheet
12x18 is a 1/2 sheet
Or at least that's how it is in my world! icon_smile.gif

Here's an easy way to remember...

A full sheet (16x24 if baked in a commercial 18x26 Bun pan with a bakeable tray) serves about 100,
half of a full (12x1icon_cool.gif serves about 50,
a quarter of a full (9x13) serves about 25.

I did some research today and if you call a grocery store bakery( I called 6) the answer is: 1/4 is 7x11, 1/2 is 11x14 or 11x15, & full is 14x22. If you call a home baker/custom bakery(I called 7) the answer is :1/4 is 9x12 or 9x13, 1/2 is 12x18 or 13x18, and full is 18x26 or 18x24. I also searched several internet web sites and seems both answers are correct. I plan to increase my cake sizes to the larger measurements. You can never have too much cake. icon_biggrin.gif

I totally agree with this ...this is what I was told. However, I have had a hard time finding out how much a 18x24 feeds ..did any of the websites mention that?

An 18x24 is just two 12x18 half sheets side by side. One 12x18 half sheet serves 54 2"x2"x2" servings (cut 6 rows x 9 columns), so two side by side serves double = 108.

Commercial Bun full sheet pans are smaller than that, so they actually serve 96 when baked in 16x24 bakeable trays or 117 if baked without the tray directly on the 18x26 pan.

An 12x18 cake feeds 48 to 54 depending if you cut it 6 by 8 or 6 by 9. So 96 or 108 are both correct answers.

CWR is correct by clarifying "54 2"x2"x2" servings".

Check your mathcutting 6 by 8 doesn't yield 2"x2"x2" servings, they'd be 2"x2.25"x2". It would also be a correct answer to say it feeds 2 as long as you clarify they are 6"x9" servings.
