Strawberry Sheet Cake with Lemon Frosting

I’m so, so, so excited to tell you about this recipe! I’ve been totally craving strawberry cake for about a month now. I was planning on making my favorite, ‘Go To Amazing Strawberry Cake’ recipe when I saw this Strawberry Sheet Cake recipe in Southern Living magazing.  Now, when I have a favorite recipe,  its really, really hard to get me to even consider trying a new one for the same thing. I really can’t, for the life of me,  explain what possessed be to try this Strawberry Sheet Cake recipe when I love my other recipe soooo much,  but OH MY GOSH, I’m soooo glad I did!!! Okay……let me tell you about this, honest to goodness INCREDIBLE cake…….. Lets start with the cake itself………it’s made with cake flour so of course its tender.  It’s got buttermilk and lotsa butter in it so its really moist. Okay, stay with me, it has fresh strawberries and  a sprinkle of strawberry jello in it, so it’s got the perfect “strawberryness” to the strawberry flavor…….if you know what I mean! Now for the surprise, knock your socks off,  I’m really serious, “SURPRISE punch”……………..the FROSTING.

Strawberry Sheet Cake with Lemon Frosting

The frosting is a lovely lemon, cream cheese, and whipped cream concoction that just may make you weep a little bit.  It’s okay if you do……………we’re all friends here and ain’t no one who tastes this cake is gonna judge! I promise you friend 🙂  Seriously, leave it to Southern Living to come up with a frosting that can make grown men and women weep a bit when they taste it! The flavors of this cake makes it absolutely perfect for spring and summer. It’s so yummy, I think it will be the perfect addition for my Easter buffet. I think I’ll make the cake the day before and refrigerate it overnight then make the frosting and frost it on Easter.  Since the frosting is made with whipped cream it’s better served the same day its made. I hope you give this cake a try soon.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you about the surprise punch. OH……and have a little hanky ready just in case…………..
