YUMMY! I made the cake with the icing recipe given. It is light and delicious. I almost overcooked the cake since the cake only needed about 35 minutes in my oven. Thanks!

This is one of the easiest cakes I've ever made! Very quick to prepare and to cook (about 30 mins) and it had a light texture. The mixed fruit was beautifully moist, though next time I think I'll add extra fruit ( a personal taste) though I don't think that it will need any extra juice. I topped it with whipped cream, delicious! Thanks for giving me such a beautiful recipe!

This is an excellent recipe. My Mother made it all the time when I was growing up. Recipe #7062 is the frosting that my Mom always used. Maybe next time I will try the one given with the cake recipe. My grandchildren like the cake very much and want it again soon.
