Wanda's Story

I got this receipe from my Daughter's grandmother. It is absolutely incredible.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a very moist cake!  If I close my eyes while eating it, the aroma almost makes me feel as though I'm eating fresh strawberries.  There's no better endorsement than that!

    I think this would be great at a baby shower for a little girl, or for Valentine's day--hey, that's coming up!
