Hi Bold Bakers!
WHAT YOU GET: In this article, you will get all of my favorite sheet cake recipes that are perfect for any occasion — but especially if you have to serve a crowd!
Sheet cakes are the perfect no-fuss dessert. They are easy to make, they cook relatively fast, there’s no stacking, leveling, or fancy decorating involved, and they feed a lot of people (or a couple of people that really like cake). Here is a list of my favorite sheet cakes I’ve made that are perfect for any event.
Nothing says celebration quite like funfetti. My Funfetti Sheet Cake is subtly flavored with vanilla and almond extract and packed with brightly-colored sprinkles, making it the best way to celebrate anything, especially a birthday.
I love red velvet cake. Everything from the bright color to the moist, cocoa flavor to the sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting on top screams delicious. My Red Velvet Sheet Cake is the best way to share the joy of red velvet cake with all of your friends. It’s very easy to make and decorate and will surely impress everyone you know.
Did you think sheet cakes couldn’t get any easier? Think again because my Peanut Butter Sheet Cake can be made in one bowl, no mixer required. That’s right, just one bowl and one sheet pan and that’s it. In addition to how easy it is, it’s so delicious. It’s moist, sweet, and full of flavor.
Carrot cake is so universal. Everyone loves it whether they have a “sweet tooth” or not. It just has such a warm, toasty feel that’s perfect for any occasion. My Carrot Cake Sheet Cake is extra moist and is packed with the sweet, cinnamony flavor that makes carrot cake so special.
Who doesn’t love a good chocolate cake? My Ultimate Texas Sheet Cake is everything a good chocolate cake should be. It’s moist, chocolatey, covered with fudgy frosting, and topped with flavorful, crunchy toasted pecans. This will surely satisfy any chocolate lover’s cravings.
This one is for all the bakers out there with dietary restrictions. In addition to the cake being gluten-free, both the frosting and the cake are gluten-free, sugar-free, and grain-free. Therefore, this Gluten-Free Texas Sheet Cake is a delicious treat for anyone with gluten issues or anyone who’s trying to watch their sugar.
Keep it simple, keep it classy. There’s a reason why vanilla cake is a go-to like simple chocolate — you can’t really beat a classic flavor, and it’s so easy to make. This Vanilla Sheet Cake recipe checks all of the boxes of a good vanilla cake — and has the buttercream frosting, too. You can just feed a crowd with it!
