Linda Woodham


I wish I had a picture to show you.It is an awesome cake. I found the recipe in Woman's Day magazine, I changed the cake to a cake mix to make it easier.My family loves it and all the neighborhood kids love coming in and having cake and hot chocolate on Halloween.There seems to be a lot of adults coming with the kids since I've started making this cake.lol It would be great for Halloween parties. HAPPY HALLOWEEN
