Step by step tutorial for how to make a sheet cake!
Switching from round layer cakes to a rectangle cakes isn’t as daunting as it may seem
And with a few professional tips and tricks on how to make a perfect sheet cake and some basic cake decorating tools you will be amazed at how easy it can be!
I’ve decided to use my famous bakery style yellow cake today
With a double filling of chocolate buttercream and a layer of fudge filling!
Of course you can use whatever recipes you like the most and I have archives for Icings and Fillings as well as all the cake recipes which convert beautifully into sheet cakes
Rule of Thumb for converting cake recipes:
If your recipe makes two nice thick 8″ layers it will equally make one perfect half sized sheet pan, otherwise known as the 12″ x 18″ pan
In the video tutorial I explain that I always prefer to bake in a half sheet pan then cut it in half for two equal 1/4 sheet pan layers
But you can also divide that same amount of batter into two 1/4 sheet pans instead
When it comes to the actual decoration of this cake the video tutorial will be your best visual tool
