TopicWhat size is a half sheet cake pan.

For a shortcut, remember that a 9-inch round cake pan holds about 6 cups (if the batter is 1 1/2 inches deep). A 13-by-9-inch pan holds 12 cups. And a standard cupcake pan, with 1/2 cup batter in each of six cups, holds 3 cups. So a two-layer cake batter should convert easily to 12 cupcakes or a sheet cake.
A sheet cake is a fast solution when you have to make a cake to accommodate a lot of people. One problem which can occur for home bakers is that standard large baking sheets do not fit in residential ovens. Several quarter sheet trays need to be combined to prepare bigger creations and baking sheets now come in a dizzying assortment of choices, which causes even more confusion.
