    Lainey6605's Note:

    Another recipe from my mother-in-law. I make this when I want a change from the usual chocolate or white cake. The frosting is perfect for this cake.

      You have got a winning recipe here Lainey! Made this to bring over to some friends and everyone loved your cake! Your instructions were very clear... except for the milk which you have in your ingredients and do not appear in your instructions... I added it at the same time as the dry ingredients. I had a bit of trouble with the icing (you were right that the frosting hardens very fast!!) but the cake in itself was moist and delicious and the icing is sooooo good!!! Thanks Lainey (and your mother-in-law!!) for this great recipe!
