How to make "sheet" cake

Bazel | Mar 10, 2012 10:52 AM

I am hosting my nieces baby shower next week and have gotten it into my head that I want to make a baby block cake (think multiple small baby blocks in single serving size). I am not a baker and have always been challenged to cut regular cakes into layers.

Is it possible to make a sheet cake using my half sheet pans and have it not come out totally dry and tasteless? In my head, if I start with a sheet cake then I can use my square cutters to cut same size pieces and layer into block shapes.

Does anyone have a recipe (chocolate preferred) or method suggestion to start with a box mix (again, I am not really a baker)?
