You’re going to want to try this. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and tangy.
I’m a huge fan of sheet cakes because they are so much easier to make! And, I’m loving how this pretty pink marshmallow frosting looks extra special with a lemon garnish.
To prepare this pink lemonade sheet cake, start by adding 1 cup of sugar and 1 stick of Nellie’s Free Range Unsalted butter (softened to room temperature) in a medium bowl. Using a hand mixer, beat until well blended.
Add three large Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, one at a time, until combined. Next, mix in 1/4 cup thawed lemonade concentrate (regular or pink lemonade both work!).
In a separate small bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Next, pour half of the flour mixture into the sugar mixture and beat until blended. Pour in half of the buttermilk and stir until combined. Repeat the process by mixing in the remaining flour mixture and buttermilk.
Once combined, pour the batter into a greased 9×13 cake pan or a 10″x15″ bar pan (I used a bar pan).
Bake at 350° for 28-32 minutes for a cake pan, and 22-25 minutes for a bar pan.
To make the marshmallow frosting, combine 1 cup of powdered sugar and 1 stick of Nellie’s Free Range Unsalted Butter (softened to room temperature) in a medium bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until well blended.
Add 1 jar of marshmallow fluff (about 7 oz.). Then, mixing in one tablespoon at a time, add 2-6 tablespoons of thawed lemonade concentrate until you’ve reached the desired frosting consistency. The marshmallow frosting will be thick and sticky, but still easily spreadable.
Add food coloring if desired, and frost your pink lemonade sheet cake once it has cooled. Top each slice with fresh or candied lemon, if desired!
