    Tinkerbel's Note:

    I found this in my grandma's recipe box and discovered that it is terribly addicting. Make sure you have plenty of red food coloring or else you will end up with a pink cake.

      I had this recipe a long time ago, but lost it. This is my daughter's favorite cake. I'm so happy to have found the recipe again. I'm going to make it for her for our Palm Sunday get together.
