My mother told me this cake started during the depression era - no eggs or shortening needed because they are in the mayonnaise. She made this cake for my birthday - always a 5 layer cake for birthdays with Fudge Frosting! I'm 70 now, and I still want this cake for 'my day' but a 2 layer or sheet cake is just fine.
