Recipe from Hotmama. Her directions: If you are going to cheat, make the frosting and buy a cake mix, rather than making the cake and using premade frosting - it's the frosting that makes it!You'll love this Texas cake, you need to do it in a big jelly roll pan or large cookie sheet with about a 1 inch high side. We like it because it has an excellent frosting to cake ratio, since it's only 1 inch thick!
