My mother has always made this cake for as long as I can remember. I always thought it was so hard to make and would never try. My mother finally made me make it for my oldest sons birthday. It was easy. This is my oldest son's and my best friends favorite cake. I made one for the school bake sale and it brought 15 dollars. I love making this cake and the memories I have when I make it.
