Strawberries-and-Cream Sheet Cake

    Wonderful strawberry cake. Best I've ever eaten in my life! Took it to an outdoor party and everyone raved over it. Used freshly squeezed lemon juice and fresh strawberries, whole buttermilk, & regular strawberry gelatin. It did seem redundant to flour cake pan when I used parchment paper. I think if you're planning to serve the cake in the pan, you probably don't need parchment paper, but you would need to use shortening and flour on the pan.

    The cake is good cake, but too much lemon juice and did not specify regular jello, not sugarfree.

    One of the best cakes ever! The only mod I did was use a 1:1 mix of milk and plain greek yogurt in place of the buttermilk. I will be making this cake again, I am sure!

    The cake was delicious but the frosting did have too much lemon juice. It would be nice to have the nutritional information listed as well.

    The cake itself is delicious! I actually made it in cupcake form to take for a friends birthday. After reading some others comments here about the frosting, I reduced the lemon juice to 1 tablespoon and dissolved the 1/3 c. sugar in it before adding to the heavy whipping cream (made it less grainy). Worked like a charm and tastes perfect. My only concern with this frosting is that due to the use of the whipping cream and the slightly runny consistency of the frosting it may melt when I take it out of my air conditioned apartment! We'll see...may want to consider a different frosting in the future.

    Made this for a Memorial Day dessert. Was a big hit. The cake was moist and the icing was great.

    I made this cake according to the recipe. It was very good, light and fluffy with delicious strawberry flavor. I made it without the frosting, so I can't comment on it. I used regular jello, but the recipe didn't specify. Also, the pan preparation instructions don't make any sense...why grease and flour the pan only to use parchment paper too? I did it, but it was a waste.

    This cake is easy to make and absolutely wonderful! I was using our fresh strawberries to make another recipe involving white cake mix and a package of strawberry jello. It was pretty good, but why waste lovely, home-grown berries on a cake full of chemicals and preservatives? This cake was almost as easy to make, and SO, SO much better!!! The 2 TBS of strawberry jello added just enough color and flavor to add a little "zing" without being overwhelming. I did not have fresh buttermilk, so added 2 TBS of freshly-squeezed lemon juice to a cup of room-temp milk to make my own. I made the rest of the recipe as written, but heeded the advice of other reviewers who did not use the parchment paper. I sprayed the pan with the aerosol flour/oil baking spray and it came out of the pan just fine. If I were taking this to an event, I would use the parchment paper method. For the icing, again referring to reviews, I used 1 TB lemon juice. Highly recommend both recipes!
