    Ian Magary's Note:

    This was my favorite birthday cake growing up as a young boy. Everytime my Grandma Laura would come to visit us in Taos, NM, she'd pick one up from Dory's Bakery and bring it over. I was able to get ahold of Dory long after she'd sold the place and surprisingly she still remembered me and my mother, Joan, who was her friend. She gladly gave me the recipe although the measurements were obviously for multiple cakes, I quartered it and came up with the right increments for just one really large one or a couple regular ones. This cake doesn't include frosting but was sprinkled with powdered sugar and served. Believe me when I tell you the frosting is not missed! This coming from a former little boy with a hell of a sweet tooth!
