Full Answer

Before baking a half sheet cake, butter and flour the cake pans, and add a layer of parchment paper to the bottom of each pan. This makes it easier to remove the cakes without them breaking once they have cooled. Never attempt to take a warm cake out of the pan. To assemble a half sheet cake from two smaller cakes, place the cakes side by side, with the long sides touching, on a cake board.
