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.
The depth of the pan is key to note whether you’re dealing with a single layer or double layered cake. If you want a single layer cake, use a deeper pan. If you’d like multiple layers, you have two options: use two shallow pans to bake two thinner cakes, or use one deep pan to create a tall cake that you can cut into layers once it cools.
