We love that our sheet cakes are quick and simple to make (especially during the rush-around holiday season), and they serve a lot of people!! Serve this delicious cake with hot cocoa after sledding or caroling or shopping! Or take it along to a Christmas party. Sheet cakes are super easy to transport and serve.

If you need a sheet pan, check out our favorite, HERE. It even comes with a lid, making transporting as easy as possible. This sheet pan is the size of 2 – 9×13’s, so if you need to, you can divide the batter into 2 pans.
