Make Something Monday: Texas Sheet Sheath Cake

Yesterday was my birthday and I requested a Texas Sheet Cake. Now my friend, Claire, who was born & raised in Texas tells us that it's a Texas Sheath Cake, not sheet cake. Anyway, I wanted one. So today I read out the recipe that I found at Recipezaar to Eric as he prepared it. This cake is amazingly easy and quick to make. We did the recipe without any nuts (although I would have preferred them!) and Eric only used 1 stick of butter instead of 2, but it turned out GREAT! See how happy I am? (I am pictured in new clothes we bought for me this weekend!)Here is a pic of the cake and a link to the recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/Texas-Sheet-Cake-13554 You can make the entire thing in well under an hour!! w00t!
