Once summer hits, it seems like my weekends just fill up with fun plans. Maybe you're going to a picnic or party this weekend, too. What are you going to bring with you? How about this delicious cake that will please vanilla and chocolate fans alike? I like bringing sheet cakes to potlucks. They're simple, unfussy, and easy to transport.
The sheet cake I'm making today is vanilla topped with a malted-milk-chocolate frosting -- a flavor that brings me right back to my childhood.
