NIKKI's notes for this recipe:
I had made this recipe once for a party, Luscious just like in the title.:) I defintely had to make two next time everyone had mention.
When I made it, it looked just like the picture not as pretty. If you like the picture , the end result tastes even better. I am going to try a lemon-lime next time A true keeper.
I got this cake from
Make it Your Way...
