    sugaree's Note:

    I found this in Woman's World magazine and made it for Easter. My dad came back for seconds, something he never does. It may look a bit labor intensive, but it really is not.

      This is the first decadent cinnamon cake I have ever tasted! My husband mmmmmmmmmed all the way through it and declared it as one of his top 5 favorite cakes! I was a little confused about the assembly but as I worked thru the instructions they make sense. I had trouble getting it out of the pan, but it was minor, Also it fell apart when I cut into it, but that might have been because it was not completly cooled before serving. Great cake, I will be making it again.

      I've had this wonderful recipe for years and the only thing I do different is bake in a 9x13, leave in pan and frost when cool, easy to keep just cover top.

      This is the BEST cake I have ever eaten. I added some cinnamon to the icing and mixed it in well before putting on the cake and served it with Butter Pecan ice cream. It was a hit!! Thank you for sharing.
