The pictures for the chocolate sheet cake just doesn't do justice to how this cake tastes. Moreover, I made this cake late in the evening so was unable to take pictures due to inadequate lighting. So I took it the next morning straight from the refrigerator......sigh! Yep! you can guess my impatience to get this amazing recipe quickly over to you guys!

This recipe tastes very 'homemade'. It will take you down memory lane..............probably will remind you of the cake your best friend's mum used to bake when you were younger............but of course better :D
They are absolutely soft and moist and perfect for kids. 

These sheet cakes might not be very fancy looking, but they are perfect for Friday night dessert cravings and to feed the entire family. The frosting literally takes a minute to come together. Please do do do try it out and don't forget to thank me  ;)
