My daughter's 5th grade cooking class found this on the Internet and made it as a project. All the parents inhaled this cake!

I made this yesterday to have for Easter dinner at my sisters house. I followed the recipe exactly...the taste was wonderful. The only thing that we did not care for was that the cake ended up tasting "mushy". We served it right out of the fridge.
