Strawberry Frosted Sheet Cake is a perfectly light and fluffy strawberry cake and best of all, it’s made from scratch with NO cake or jello mix. It’s full of fresh and freeze-dried strawberries and topped with an easy buttercream cream cheese frosting.
Strawberry picking was on our summer bucket list but it’s been so busy that we sadly missed out on getting around to it this year.
So I did the next best thing I could think of, I stocked up on fresh local strawberries when I spotted them for a great price last month and have been adding them to salads and as many desserts as I possibly can.
There is no strawberry gelatin powder added like most strawberry sheet cakes and is made completely from scratch. I used fresh and freeze-dried strawberries that I blended into powder using my coffee grinder to brighten it up the color. If you can’t find any freeze-dried strawberries – you can also a drop or two of food color to add some color if you like but feel free to leave it out if you prefer.
The fresh fruity flavor makes it a nice and light dessert and is sure to be a hit at any potluck, shower or summer party.
