Recipe by Chef shapeweaver

I was looking through an old Fannie Farmer Cookbook, and came across this recipe.The original recipe made a 2-layer cake, but I cut it down to just make a smaller snack size type of cake.I put 25 minutes as the baking time,but you might want to check after 20.After mixing frosting ingredients, you might want to add a bit more powdered sugar to get the desired thickness.
