Texas Sheet Cake

I made this cake for my friend's goig away party--they were moving to Texas so it seemed appropriate.  It was a hit.  One of Rob's favorite things in life is Texas Sheet Cake so I've made it a few times since then too.  This cake probably contributed to my pregnancy weight gain.  Ok, I'm sure it definitely contributed.  Make it.  You'll love it.  I added a little cinnamon to the cake and we really like it that way but if that doesn't sound good to you, leave it out.
