Half Sheet Cake: This size cake is usually what you will find when you stumble upon a store launch at your local grocery store, a larger birthday party, or even an anniversary party. The larger surface is perfect for more elaborate decoration and a longer message written in icing. A half sheet cake is quite large but still easy to make and bake with a little organization and space.
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.
