Valentine’s Day is around the corner and we have a really fun, simple and delicious Raspberry Sheet Cake with White Chocolate Frosting for you guys. I love sheet cake in general, they’re super easy to make and serve to a large group of people. Today’s cake has a nice and subtle flavor of raspberry added to it. It’s paired with a really creamy white chocolate frosting as raspberries and white chocolate go SO well together. The frosting is extra fluffy because I added some heavy cream to the mixture which really makes such a huge difference to the texture!

I’m normally not too into food coloring in my food, but I added some red food gel to the cake. The food gel gave the cake the rich color I wanted for this Valentine’s Day treat.  Red food gel is also easy to find at local grocery stores. Beet powder can also be stirred in for an equally deep color and a natural food coloring approach. You can find beet powder in most whole foods and specialty grocery stores as well as right here. I topped the raspberry sheet cake with white chocolate frosting with some roughly crushed freeze dried raspberries to match the flavor of the cake. It’s a really simple way to decorate the cake in a really pretty way.

If you’re looking for some other Valentine’s Day treat ideas we have a lot of fun ones on our site! These Deviled Hearts are simple, no-baked cheesecake filled strawberries that everyone loves. We also have these Real Strawberry and Sparkling Rose Gummy Hearts that are delicious and way easier than they may seem to make! Enjoy! xx, Jenny

      Yes, although the baking time will have to be adjusted a bit and they don’t rise quite as much .
