      This Pumpkin Sheet Cake is super moist and is packed with yummy pumpkin goodness that is topped with a cinnamon cream cheese frosting that is simply divine!  This cake is right up my husband's alley.  If you could smell this cake right now, y'all would be begging for a slice!  Oh, by the way, did I mention that it takes less than one hour, start-to-finish, to make?!  It's true!

       Before we begin, you will need a HEAVY duty 13"x18" sheet pan for baking this cake in.

       Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Spray your sheet pan with cooking spray and set aside.
