A few notes:
- If desired, you can make this in a 9 x 13 baking instead. Simply increase your baking time to 35 minutes.
- The amount of frosting for this will probably be a bit much for a 9 x 13 pan. If so, keep any leftover frosting in a covered container in the refrigerator.
- You should also keep any leftover cake in a covered container in the refrigerator.
