Years ago, I had my first snickerdoodle and I realized what a huge mistake I had made skipping over them for another favorite kind of cookie for my whole life. I am snickerdoodle-obsessed now and have been testing out many a snickerdoodle recipe, whether it be cookies, bars, cakes, breakfast recipes, etc. I was looking forward to making this Snickerdoodle Cake and was not disappointed at all. It was a wonderful cake with lots of cinnamon flavor and the frosting was incredible.
