Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

Oh yeah... I know I said probably no post 'til we moved... well, then I made this cake...

Ooey Gooey Peanut Butter Sheet Cake!!!! I apologize, I obviously didn't melt my butter quite all the way... hence the white specs in the frosting. But don't let that deter you away... it's delicious!!! And it took my mood from crabby and mean (ask Aaron) to happy and content. :) Haha.
