This is a Detroit-area favorite. I recently made this for my mom's birthday, since it was always her favorite cake, and it turned out delicious! The icing is the actual Sanders recipe that was printed in the Detroit News in 1973, and will frost a two-layer 9" cake. The cake recipe is from Gourmet, Jan. 2008 and will only make a 1-layer cake, so double the recipe if you would like 2 layers. Enjoy!
