I set out to make Texas sheet cake for my Mom's birthday,and the morning of baking the cake,I realized I didn't have any powdered sugar,which is what most of the icing recipes for the cake call for,so...I went on a mad search for a recipe that was quick,and didn't require powdered sugar. This recipe fit the bill for me,with a few exceptions. 1st off,most the the reviewers said it firmed up rather quickly,so I did pour the icing on my WARM cake,pretty much right from the oven. It spread beautiful and was easy to work with. It firmed up in a short time,and it turned out great. With that said,my sheet cake was quite large,its made in a 15" jelly roll pan; so I doubled the recipe. If you need to do that,DO NOT double the sugar amount. Way too sweet. It was edible,but a bit crunchy,due to all the sugar. The chocolate flavor was good,consistancy good,amount was good,just don't add too much sugar. Thanks for a great recipe! :)
