baking a sheet cake instead of a tall cake

jeniyo | Jan 30, 2010 08:30 PM

I am trying to bake a bunch of little cakes for a kids birthday party. i'm want to make this one:


I wanted to make a large sheet cake in my 12*16 sheet pan and cut the (hopefully leveled) sheet into 4" rounds. do you think this is doable? i am not looking for an very tall cake- as these are such small cakes and are stacked. do you think i should:

1. lower/ increase temp?
2. use/get heating core?
3. reduce flour by a Tbl. (for leveling)
4. add baking time?
5. use 12*8 pans instead.

We are having girls coming to decorate these mini cakes, which will be already filled with chocolate frosting and pre-coat with Swiss M. Buttercream.

lots of work, but i hope the kids have fun...
