Because size conversions can get confusing, one way you can simplify things is to choose pans that have lengths or widths that are divisible by each other. For example, if your “full” sheet pan is 18” x 24”, you should find a half size pan that’s 12” x 18” and a quarter pan that’s 9” x 12”, since those numbers divide evenly into each other.
Before baking a half sheet cake, butter and flour the cake pans, and add a layer of parchment paper to the bottom of each pan. This makes it easier to remove the cakes without them breaking once they have cooled. Never attempt to take a warm cake out of the pan. To assemble a half sheet cake from two smaller cakes, place the cakes side by side, with the long sides touching, on a cake board.
