    ForeverMama's Note:

    I've found some old recipes and I'm feeling quite nostalgic these days and want to "safe keep" tried and true recipes from years past that taste great and were well received. This particular recipe came from the back of the box of "Swans Down Self Rising Flour". I remember making this for the 1st time when I was 11 or 12 years old for my nieces baptism.

      We all loved this terrific cake. Wow, what flavor and the textures were incredible. So worth the extra effort. I always loved 7 minute frosting as a kid and I still do. The frosting was out of this world good, fresh it was like creamy whipped marshmallows, after sitting covered in the fridge it has a consistency kind of like meringue. So :yummy: . The cake was lovely, perfect crumb, tall, light and tender, full of delicate flavors. Thank you so much for another wonderful treat that reminds me of my childhood. Made for Photo Tag
