If you're planning your own or invited to a picnic, a barbecue or a summer party, you need a big bowl of pasta salad and a dessert that satisfies a big group of people. For these occasions a sheet cake is one of the best ideas you can have, cause they are cheap, easy to do, and quick.

All you need is a bowl and a baking sheet. And an oven, obviously! You don't need a baking tin (which we always forget at parties) or other complicated things. If gooseberries are not in season right now, you can easily replace them with apples and a pinch of cinnamon, pears, rhubarb, any other berries or nectarines, and peaches. This cake is just too easy to be true.
