Snickerdoodle Sheet Cake

Today I finally got around to making my Birthday Cake.  It is a Snickerdoodle Sheet Cake.  I saw this cake on Sweet Treats and More blog and thought it sounded so good.  I was right it is as good as it sounds.  The cake is soft and airy and the icing is sweet and cinnamony.  The only thing that would make it better is to have a big scoop of vanilla ice cream with it.
