Look, I know it's a kind of a dumb question. I have made cakes of all sorts of shapes and sizes. What exactly is a sheet cake do I use my cookie sheet with sides or is this another cake pan I need to purches. Also, how mutch cake batter do I use and how long do I bake it.
A sheet cake is basically a rectangular cake and there are pans that you can find at Michael's to bake a sheet cake.
I haven't baked one myself so I can't answer your other questions.
A sheet cake is generally a 2" tall, rectangle shaped cake. Some people call it a slab cake (geesh I HATE the word "slab"! Sounds so "sloppy" to me! You can't say that word without your tongue hanging down to your chin and saliva dripping off of it! )
In my area, it's just an iced cake. Some people will tort and fill the cake.
But if you stack two 2" tall cakes with filling, it's no longer a sheet cake. It's a 2-layer cake.
Thank you for the info. I have a client who wants the bace of his wedding cake to be a full sheet. Didn't make sence to me eather. I just wanted to get my facts straight before the final planing. By the way I don't like the word "slab" either
