I forgot that I had this recipe until someone asked about it. Shaped and tastes like the Suzy-Q snack cakes (made by Hostess)!

    Great recipe... I made this tonight for my mother in laws birthday tomorrow.. suzie q's are her most favorite snack cake and when I found this recipe I knew this was definitely for her..I did have an issue with making the filling.. only because I goofed the instructions,,, so I dumped it and retried and the second time it came out pretty good.. I don't know if I did something wrong but the texture was kinda lumpy and not like whipped cream.. but I tasted it and it was delish so I filled the cake anyway.. I figure a night in the fridge may help set up the filling just right,, thank you so much for sharing as I know my MIL will love it!!

    This is a good recipie - tastes great - yet not too sweet.<br/>I beat the crisco and sugars together for a LONG time in the Kitchenaid, then when I combined the sugar/crisco mixture with the flour/milk mixture I again let it mix for a Long time (probably 10 min) in the Kitchenaid. I think that helped a lot.
