Chrissy Teigen once said that tiered cakes are out and sheet cakes are in. I’m 100% on board with it so let’s make Citrus Sheet Cake!!
Don’t get me wrong, I love a tiered cake, but holy moly they are a lot of work. Sheet cakes are waaaaaay easier and I’m into it. This Citrus Sheet Cake is just 3 easy parts….
1: a really delicious lemon cake that’s made with cake flour so it’s a bit lighter since it has less protein than All Purpose flour which results in a super melty tender cake layers.
2: a crazy delish buttercream that you’ll want to eat with a spoon. The buttercream gets dolloped all over the cake and swooped into decorations. You could also do my marshmallow meringue instead which is beyond and would take this in a different but excellent direction!
3: sliced citrus on top to give it an extra oomph because we have to milk the end of citrus season as long as humanly possible! Blood oranges, grapefruits, oranges, tangerines, etc. You name it… and it’s fair game.
Tell me that doesn’t make you happy just looking at it?! Let’s all make some Citrus Sheet Cake this weekend and get into it!
