Sheet Cake Recipes Worthy Of The Biggest Celebrations

When it comes to cake, you go big.

Sheet cakes might be thought of by some bakers as the lazy man’s cake, but we’re here to refute that misconception. Sure, with a sheet cake there are no fancy layers, no ombré colors, and very seldom, if any, intricate decorations. And yes, they are easy to bake. But sheet cakes are the right fit for avid bakers and those with a little less energy.

Why? Because they’re gloriously big.

The one-layered cake often comes with a thick layer of frosting on top, too. It’s a no-fuss, no-frills cake that easily feeds a crowd. While it makes sense for big celebrations, it’s a good choice for smaller ones too ― because leftover cake is a true blessing.
