Fruit Cocktail Cake

My mother, bless her heart, didn't know how to cook or bake. She knew how to make one cake, and a couple of main courses like fried chicken or pork chops. Anyway, everywhere we were invited, my mother made this cake. When I was little, I didn't have a taste for it. My sister loved it though. Once I got older, I really liked it. It brings back old memories every time I make it.
