Chef shapeweaver �'s Note:
I found this recipe in the 2005 Taste of Home Annual Recipes cookbook.It was sent into them by Verna Mae Floyd from Highlands,Texas. The instructions were changed around just a bit to make them less confusing to a novice baker.I used milk instead of water for the frosting.This cake is just perfect for two, they can have two pieces each.( But not at the same time, unless you are really craving cake ;) )cooling time is included in prep time.Submitted to "ZAAR" on January 23, 2009.
