This recipe for cherry sheet cake definitely puts the cherry on top of all desserts. Literally. Cherry is usually my first choice in flavor followed along by strawberry and raspberry. This is not your traditional sheet cake recipe, in fact, it’s much easier than than because it’s made with a cherry cake mix, however, the frosting is homemade but I promise I made it easy for you to make.

If you want to cut out some steps you could use store bought frosting or even another recipe if you’d like I like quick cake recipes and and this one saves so much time. And did I mention that it’s delicious? It is!!! Enjoy all of the goodness in each slice!
