Recipe by Tejas_Ruthie

I snagged this off of Facebook. I looked but didn't see this already in the recipes so I am adding it. I made it over the weekend for company and it was a huge hit! It was moist and very flavorful. I didn't have red food coloring so the icing is white. I baked the cake on Friday night and iced it on Sat morning. Turned out perfect.
