Sheet cakes might be thought of by some bakers as the lazy man's cake, but we're here to bring it to its proper greatness. Sure, with a sheet cake there are no fancy layers, no ombre colors, and very seldom any intricate decorations. It's as basic as it gets when it comes to cake.

What you normally get is a one-layered cake with a thick layer of frosting on top. And, it's great.

Plus, there's the added bonus that it was infinitely easier to bake, making it taste just that much sweeter to us.
