Carrot Cake Sheet Cake

When I have a big crowd to please, I immediately think of sheet cake. It’s as easy to make as it is to serve. And when you have a lot of people eager for dessert, trust me, you’ll want a cake that’s easy to serve!

I also just love carrot cake in the spring. Carrot cake has such a depth of flavor that both “sweet tooth” people and “I’m not a dessert person” people love it. The carrots provide a natural sweetness that is balanced by the warmth of the cinnamon, the toasty walnuts, and deliciously tangy cream cheese frosting.

Carrot cake gets a bad rap because it can so often be too dry. My homemade carrot cake sheet cake is so incredibly moist because of one secret ingredient: vegetable oil!
