Vanilla Texas Sheet Cake

As promised, here is Sue's recipe for Vanilla Texas Sheet Cake. I absolutly love these and truly can't say which sheet cake I like more! While I love the sweet, chocolately goodness of her Buttermilk Sheet Cake Brownies, I love the hint of cinnamon and rich cream cheese frosting on this vanilla version! This recipe is also highly requested and was served at the baptism along side the chocolate one. Enjoy!
