Easy Lemon Sheet Cake Recipe

I love sheet cakes- they are perfect for when you need to feed a crowd or need a yummy dessert in a very short amount of time. There are over 20 people at all of our parties and gatherings, so big desserts like this are a staple! And since dessert is our favorite part of any family gathering, we need as much as possible! 🙂

    When you say cool cake...do you mean in the pan or out of the pan on a rack? I was wondering if the cake would fall apart if I cool it on a rack because of the consistency. With cooling it in the pan (like brownies) I was concerned if it would come out when serving. Thanks in advance for your response. Looking forward to making this today for my daughter's baby shower. : )
