 If you can’t tell by now, I LOVE sheet cakes. Whether its a Peanut Butter Sheet Cake, Caramel Apple Sheet Cake, German Chocolate Sheet Cake or a Creme Brûlée Sheet Cake… I couldn’t say no to any of them!

After making the Key Lime Bundt Cake, I knew I needed to get in a Key Lime Sheet Cake before summer ended. Key Limes are so cute and little but jam packed with tart and tangy flavor.

 This Cake has such a tart and sweet flavor all at once. The creamy frosting on top is the perfect finishing touch and together the cake and icing make a heavenly bite each and every time!

If you are a fan of the citrusy flavors, then this cake is an absolute MUST! I know you will love it as much as we do!

    This cake is one of the best cakes I've ever made. It was very moist and full of citrusy flavor. I did poke the holes in the cake but I won't the next time. Its not necessary and the holes show through the frosting.
