A couple of years ago my fiance wanted a butternut cake for his birthday, ok no problem i found the recipe on Flora's Recipes, the problem was finding BUTTERNUT FLAVORING!!!!!!, i looked every where for it, finally i had to order it online, didn't cost a lot, just not readily available in our area. But wow the cake was awesome, and even better 3 days later
