This cake was published in the very first edition of the magazine "Southern Lady". It was created as a tribute to the magazine by a lady in Atlanta known as the "Cake Lady". She is truly talented! This is my most favorite cake and the one that's most often requested at my house. I have been making this cake for years and I follow the recipe exactly as it's written. I have never in all those years had this cake turn out soggy. True, it is a MOIST cake, but if made as written, should not be soggy.
