Better Than Anything Cake

Angela (Grammy) Derby


Everyone loves this cake! I've made this it numerous times, and people just devour it! It originally called for it to be frosted with just whipped topping, but adding the other ingredients makes it a little sturdier (and tastier) and holds up the toffee and caramel sauce better.
