OMG Freda, this sounds fantastic. I will be making it if not tomorrow, during the week sometime. I really like the frosting recipe too, but I must get to the store to get the dream whip--have everything else. I used to use that a long time ago and just recently spotted it in the store.

OOPS--just noticed that I only gave it a 3 star rating--the computer must've jumped and I didn't see it--I will try to rerate it as this DESERVES a 10 star rating.

Thanks for sharing as I know this will be one of my staple recipes.
