Growing up, I actually hated lemon desserts. I don’t know what was wrong with my but I was not on board with the tart flavors. However, I have come to LOVE lemon! There is such a light, airy and refreshing flavor in everything it touches.

Now that summer is here, so are all the family get togethers, pot lucks and reunions. Whenever I am in charge of bringing a dessert, I love to bring a sheet cake. They serve a crowd, are super simple and taste SO good.

This Lemon Sheet Cake will be a hit wherever it goes! Be sure and make it this summer, everyone who tries it will thank you for it :)
