It is virtually impossible to torte (cut in half) a sheet cake without it cracking or crumbling. Always chill the sheet cake if you are going to torte it so it is firm and cuts smoothly. Nevertheless, it is better to bake the layers in separate pans.
During baking, check the cake at least a couple of times to determine if it is finished, taking into account a shorter baking time than a standard recipe. For easier handling when making layer cakes, place your baked sheet cake in the freezer or at least the fridge wrapped in plastic.
