Although I say Sasha, this cake has always been a favourite with all my children, and since I'm not a great baker, this was a good stand-by in the days when I needed a cake for the birthday and a cake for school! It comes from the "Good Housekeeping Kids CookBook, A First Step-By-Step Book for Young Cooks", which is why the instructions are quite detailed, and I don't doubt all of mine could make this if they wanted to. Sasha in particular has usually helped me with it, she is the baker! We most recently made this early in September, for her 20th birthday, in fact, we made two, since she had all her varsity friends come for a barbeque! As I say, this comes from a childrens cookbook, which is why the instructions are quite detailed, don't be put off or offended!
