It shows up at every family gathering and can only be cut when the entire family has assembled.
I adore the frosting on this delicious cake! So do many other family members -which is why the end pieces are always fought over! Yum! All that frosting!
This cake looks so fancy, but the directions are quite simple and straight forward. I do need to admit that this is one recipe I have yet to master. But at least Teresa is good to share!
