  1. Currently my Husbands favorite birthday cake and it's also a hit at Christmas with the family.
  2. I love you recipe #306458. Are you the reason I will become fat? The bottom cake layer looks thin, but that was only around the edge for about 1/2 inch. Otherwise, the cake layer was nice and tall throughout the bottom layer.
