White Texas Sheet Cake

"This cake gets better the longer it sits, so I try to make it a day ahead. My mother-in-law introduced this deliciously rich cake to me. With its creamy frosting and light almond flavor, no one can stop at just one piece!"

This cake is delicious! I used buttermilk instead of sour cream but all was still well.
