In 1976 I gave my Hubbie a surprise Birthday Party. family and close friends brought some great dishes and desserts, plus all of the Food that I prepared we could have served the whole neighborhood, and we had about 40 people at the party. :-) This cake came to the party via a good friend Debi C. and left the star of the desserts. I have been making it ever since. And don't forget the Cream Cheese Frosting. I will give you that recipe too.
