My sister reports that she ate carefully over Thanksgiving, except for this yummy cake she just couldn’t leave alone.  She said, “It was crazy good!”

Ya know how they say everything’s,”Big as all hell and half of Texas,” well this cake is!  After a small nibble it is going to be shared by four new families that have recently moved into our neighborhood, thank goodness!

    I can go past most donuts in the store, but the maple frosted ones just call out my name. This looks like a whole sheetcake of maple naughtiness. We will have to try this! Yum.

    A maple sheet cake? Big as Texas? I can’t wait for my mom to see this. She loves maple so I hope she gets all inspired to make it.

    Yeah, I know I could make it myself, but hers would be better. I jusssst know it.

    yum, I’ve made a white texas sheet cake but never one with maple – the white is great but this sounds over the top delicious!

    I’ve been in TX for 7 years now and hadn’t heard of this. Maybe I need to educate my neighbors! Looks easy enough for even me!

    I’m visiting from the Tip Me Tuesday hop.

    I’ve made chocolate sheet cake, white sheet cake and PB sheet cake so I think there’s a good chance I will be making a maple sheet cake soon. Love anything maple, this looks great.
