  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all the cake ingredients except the apricot preserves and beat at medium speed for two minutes.

  4. To make the frosting, combine everything in a medium sized bowl and beat with a mixer until spreading consistency.
  5. To assemble, top one layer with the apricot preserves; top with second layer. Spread the top and sides with frosting.
