If lemon desserts are your thing, you are really going to love this Lemon Sheet Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting. Just like my carrot cake recipe, this recipe results in a moist cake, with an irresistible creamy frosting.


I've made this cake twice in the last month. First, I made it for my family. My daughter, Lorelai, loves lemons, but doesn't enjoy lemon-flavored candies or desserts. She did, however, tell me how delicious this cake is. Three nights ago, I made it again. It was the last dance practice before recital, so I wanted to bring something special to class. It was a hit! Not only did I receive compliments the night of class, but in the Facebook group the next day, as well.


  • "...that cake was sooooo yummy!" 
  • "It was deeeeelicious!! The frosting was exceptionally yummy." 
  • "I've never had cream cheese frosting that was so smooth and light."

So let's talk about that frosting. It's indescribably delicious. Light, fluffy, smooth, and super lemon-y! You'll find it hard not to eat it with a spoon. (Ahem - I may or may not have been the one who ate what was left in the mixing bowl.)

Old-Fashioned Carrot Cake

Topped with a homemade cream cheese frosting, this Old Fashioned Carrot Cake is incredibly moist, deliciously spiced, and melt-in-your-mouth fluffy!

Springtime is here and that makes me think of carrot cake. I'm not sure why, exactly. I mean, carrot cake is an incredible dessert all year long, but it does get extra attention at this time of year.

If you've ever been hesitant to make a carrot cake from scratch, let me tell you: It's easy. No, really. A beginner cook can do this. It requires no special skills, and once you realize how easy it is to make this cake from scratch, you'll want to make it again and again. 

And once you taste it? Boom! New favorite.

This cake is perfect for serving at parties and celebrations, too. I can almost guarantee you won't be bringing any leftovers home. It will be the hit of the event!
