Cherry Sheet Cake - a moist, cherry jello cake topped with a homemade almond buttercream frosting! SO delicious!!

Hey guys! I mean, girls. 😉

It’s me, Lily!

Have you seen the new Star Wars movie? The Force Awakens? I have – two weeks ago actually. It is AWESOME!! I love it so much I made a shape poem all about BB8. He’s the new droid in the movie. My favorite person in the movie is Rey. She’s a scavenger from Jakku who realizes she has the force. She’s kind of the main character. The movie is PG-13, and I can’t watch those movies until I’m older, so my parents rented it on VidAngel which edits the movie and takes out all the bad words and violet parts, so your kids can watch it. I also read the book of the movie so I knew when they took out a violent part. 😉 I think you’ll love it!

Speaking of things you’ll love, I think you’ll REALLY like this Cherry Sheet Cake. My favorite part is all of it because I love cherries. I really like the frosting because my mom put in her favorite ingredient: almond extract!! We also put in love which makes it really good. 😀 We have tried a lot of fruity cakes recently, but this one has to be my favorite. My second favorite is Fruit Pizza – it’s so good!! If you love cherries, then you gotta try this dessert. It’s AMAZING!

    So yummy! One of the best cakes I’ve ever made. I made them into cupcakes for a church event and everyone loved them!

    1. Oh, thank you!! We love this recipe, too!! That’s a great option, to make them into cupcakes! I’m honestly not sure what happened with the cherry bars. I haven’t had that happen before. I’m sorry!

  2. I also made the sheet cake with a chocolate cake mix and it was very good as well. I used extra cherries and it was very tasty. I made the cherry bars also and the bottom came out very soggy..what do u think went wrong?

    Made the cherry sheet cake for our pizza bingo party at church. Could not find instant cherry jello
    A employee googled it and said I could get it on ebay. Well not going that route so tried another
    Store no luck. So I tried it with the regular cherry jello and baked it for the same amount of time
    It turned out delicious and worked. So those of you who can not find instant jello just a note regular
    Works.
    Enjoy!

    1. I haven’t made it in a round pan, but I’m guessing you would divide the batter into two, since those are a lot smaller. Usually the cooking time is a little longer, since it is smaller, but I wouldn’t know how long. It’s one of those, where you’d need to just keep an eye on it.

    My frosting came out nothing like the picture. Your recipe is 2-3 tablespoons of milk? Frosting was runny. What’s the secret!? Thanks in advance!

    1. Add more powdered sugar, if it’s too runny. If it’s too thick, then you would add more milk. Enjoy!

    Every year for mY husband’s birthday I make him a cherry cake. Every year they were just so-so. Tried this reCipe and EVERYONE just raved about how good it was. It was so flavorFul and moist. I made a two layer cake. I doubled the icing recipe, we love icing. It did dip a little in the center but i just filled it with icing to make it level. Lol
