VICKIE BOHALL, INIANAPOLIS, IN got the recipe from a family member yrs ago. I always make this in cupcakes because my kids have always fought over who is going to get the middle piece. This is always made for birthdays! What makes this cake super is the icing, it is a mock whipped cream, the more you whip it the better it is!!!

1 STICK MARGERINE 5 TBS FLOUR
1 CUP SURGAR

TO KEEP SMOOTH. WHEN IT STARTS TO THICKEN GOOD TURN HEAT OFF, KEEP STIRRING TIL CREAMY LOOKING. I ALWAYS COOL MINE IN THE SINK WITH INCH OR TWO OF COLD WATER SO IT WILL NOT GET REAL LUMPY. WHEN TOTALLY COOL ADD TO BUTTER MIXTURE...BEAT TILL VERY CREAMY AND YOU CAN'T TASTE ANY SURGAR GRANGULES. APPEARANCE OF WHIPPED CREAM

I ALWAYS PUT IN AIR TIGHT CONTAINER AND THE CAKE WILL BE VERY VELVETY AND MOIST.
THIS SOUNDS LIKE ALOT OF WORK, BUT THE END RESULTS ARE HEAVENLY.
