Strawberry Sheet Cake - one of the best desserts ever!! A moist and delicious strawberry cake topped with a strawberry cream cheese frosting!

Hey guys – it’s me, Lily!!

Did you have a good Saturday? I did!! Today, we had a garage sale. Some friends joined in on the garage sale. While the mommies sold stuff, all the daddies watched us kids play. We had a lot of fun!

Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is coming so quick?! Because it’s coming up, we’ve been thinking of pink and red treats to make for the special day. We saw this delicious Strawberry Sheet Cake on Pinterest (from this blog) and knew we had to make it!! It was so, so, so good! My favorite part is the frosting! It was so tasty I wanted to gobble it up. Everyone in my family loved it. My dad says it has the best frosting he’s ever tasted on a cake. I already can’t wait until we can make it again.

I really think you’ll love this recipe!! It is a new favorite. 🙂

If your mouth is watering, here’s the recipe:

    What should I use instead of a food processor? I don’t have one.

    What is “strawberry puree” that you need in the icing?

    • 16

      It is strawberries and a little sugar that have been pureed in like a food processor. If you have a cup of strawberries, add like 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar and puree in a processor or blender. You could even buy strawberry puree. Hope that helps:)

    Do you have any suggestion for adjusting the bake time for the cake to make two circular 8inch cakes?

    Thank you!
