I used a recipe from, of all places, Snyders. The only change I made in the recipe is that I baked it in a 13x9 inch pan instead of a spring-form pan that it calls for. Not sure what requires something to be made in a spring-form pan, but it worked just fine in a regular cake pan.
For the frosting, I microwaved some store bought frosting and poured it over the cake to make a thin glaze.
I will say it was a successful birthday all around.
Happy Birthday Dad!
