    Dreamgoddess's Note:

    This cake was published in the very first edition of the magazine "Southern Lady". It was created as a tribute to the magazine by a lady in Atlanta known as the "Cake Lady". She is truly talented! This is my most favorite cake and the one that's most often requested at my house. I have been making this cake for years and I follow the recipe exactly as it's written. I have never in all those years had this cake turn out soggy. True, it is a MOIST cake, but if made as written, should not be soggy.

      I work with Dreamgoddess and she gave me this recipe a couple of years ago. It is my husbands all time favorite. Just a hint though. It is best after it sits for a couple of days. If you want to serve it on a Saturday, cook it on Thursday night. One of the best things about this cake is that it is made with a cake mix and goes together in just a few minutes. But don't tell anyone it is a mix, because they won't know if you don't tell!!!
