Cake in a half-sheet pan: leave it in the pan, or take it out?

For my son's birthday party tomorrow, I just baked a cake in a half-sheet pan, which I've never done before. I was planning to take it out of the pan to cool and frost, but now that I'm about to do it the logistics seem a bit nutty. My cooling racks are too narrow for the pan, so I'd have to use two of them, which makes the flipping out of the pan part quite perilous.

When you bake a half-sheet cake, do you frost it in the pan or out? If out, how on earth do you get it out without the cake breaking? Thanks.
