Texas Sheet Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Sweet Cooking

This recipe is just another variation of the Texas Sheet Cake. My family really enjoyed it, but asked that next time I prepare, to cut the icing in half! I'm not sure I want to do that; it's perfect like it is for me!

I too had found this recipe in Taste of Home last year. And I had also misplaced it, I can't thank you enough for sharing it. I have been craving this cake for a while. A million thanks!
