I found this most amusing since that is a picture of my Signature Chocolate Lasagna...Thank you Grandma 2969 for immortalizaing my cake. I make this cake about four times a year and it is always a huge hit! First of all my cake is a very moist mayonnaise cake, no eggs or oil needed. I understand that the recipe was used during the depression when eggs and oil were difficult to come by. This recipe was passed down from my grandmother to my mom to me. Second of all, the icing goes from vanilla delicious to almond extrodinary! Save the vanilla for the cake and add almond extract to the icing. It will change your life! Just something I say....

Creamy and less sweet than traditional buttercream frosting, this was really unbelievably good (the flour and granulated sugar set off warning lights, but I forged ahead).<br/>I used all butter, cke flour and superfine sugar (just to be sure) and everything turned out perfectly! This will be a standby: I like it better than cream cheese frosting.
