Is it just me or does everybody have the fantasy about making a sheet cake for a party but the party gets canceled and you’re left hanging with a giant fabulous sheet cake all to yourself?…ok so maybe it’s just me, but you have to admit there’s something about a sheet cake that brings out the hungry kid in all of us. They’re big, they’re festive, they come in all sorts of flavors and colors, they’re snack-able…and did I mention they’re big? Whether you make yours in a half sheet, a full sheet, or just your trusty 9×13 pan, sheet cakes are one of the best things about summer.

    Heading up the cookie ministry for my church……three services on Sunday and one on Wednesday night. The Sunday services are full, probably 300 or so people with 150 on Wednesday. I won’t be the only person baking but sheet cakes seem the best way to go so I am thrilled to find your website! Wish me luck, not only withe baking but with getting enough volunteers to pitch in. I think if I provide several recipes so they can find one they feel capable of doing, with a little help from the Lord, all should go well. Fingers crossed!

    These sound delicious! I was thinking of baking one in a larger sheet cake pan (18×13) and cutting shaped “cookies” out of it. Any thoughts? Suggestions about how long to bake? Thanks.

      I’m not sure Marsha, it’s something I’ve never tried, and it would depend on the exact cake you’re talking about.

      You could certainly try, I’d start by reducing it by about 1/4 and go from there. It’s really a trial and error thing with cake recipes.
