Easy Summer Garden or Easter Cake

Norma DeRemer


With me being ill I didn't want to not try to make my neighbor her Easter Cake this year. For all she does for me I see that she get's a cake every Easter for her and her family. I saw this in a magazine at the Dr's office and had to try to make it. I did some little changes as to using boxed cake and canned frosting instead of home made. It was less time in the kitchen for the way I was feeling that day. Came out really cute and she loved it.
