Texas Sheet Cake

This is one of my favorite cakes. I think it is mainly because of the frosting... it is to die for!!! I would eat it by the spoonfuls if I could. This was the first thing I made that really made me sad about the gestational diabetes. I did manage to get ONE spoonful in though and it was divine :)
