Connor's parents wanted a marble cake and finding a recipe that would be big enough for a sheet cake was a little harder than I thought. I finally ended up using this recipe:
I doubled the recipe to make ONE sheet cake and made that twice. There was enough cake that way. (As an aside, this same recipe also makes two 10-inch and two 6-inch round cakes. With my fancy convection oven, I can bake them all at the same time and it's fabulous!!) The filling I used on Thomas was a plain old buttercream. Yummy!
There's nothing better than seeing a cake at its' final destination. Thomas the CAKE certainly found a very loving home.
And here's my adorable nephew, the birthday boy. He was a very happy little 3 year old which made it all worth it!
