Banana Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

We always have leftover bananas that get so ripe that our kids refuse to eat them. So whenever we have a bunch of these bananas we will usually make a Banana Cake. When we were in Target last week, we picked up all the ingredients we would need to make this delicious sheet cake and of course some gold foil plates to serve it on.

The rich and creamy cream cheese frosting piled on thick makes this cake sure to be a big hit. Plus because it filled with delicious and ripe bananas, you can feel good giving it to your family and friends.
