If you’ve been here for awhile, you know I love a good sheet cake recipe. I used to make cakes for a living actually. Not sheet cakes but gourmet 3 layered cakes as well as large wedding cakes too. I loved it and loved the artistic side of decorating cakes but I eventually got burned out and ultimately decided to pursue my life long dream of being a food blogger and well here we are! Back to cakes, I wanted to be able to turn my gourmet 3 layered cake recipes into sheet cake recipes to make them more accessible and user friendly for the average person.
This sheet cake is based off of a 3 layered cake recipe I created back when I was selling cakes, only this version is super easy and not intimidating at all. It starts with my homemade graham cracker cake base, made with real graham crackers and then is frosted with a creamy cheesecake style “frosting”, next it gets a whole bunch of berries (otherwise known as razzleberries, a combination of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries) with a sweet glaze and is topped with a streusel crumble. It’s the perfect dessert for a large summer party or barbecue.
Tips & Tricks:
- You can break up this cake making process into 2 days if you want to simplify it. Make the streusel and cake on day 1. Store the streusel in a large Ziploc bag and store the cake covered completely with a lid or plastic wrap. On day 2 make the cheesecake topping and the berry medley and do your assembling.
- You don’t have to use the exact berries in the recipe. You can use all raspberries or all blueberries. Whatever your heart desires!
- Danish Dessert is a brand similar to Jello and can be found in most grocery stores next to the Jello.
