This recipe was passed down to me years ago by my children's Grandma. I still have the original recipe card that it was written on with the pretty cherry border on the card that she gave to me that day. My former mother-in-law was a gifted baker and she loved every minute of it! My children especially loved it when their Grandma would add her home made whipped topping to this cake. That was always such a treat for them! I will always cherish this recipe and be sure to keep this one tucked safely away.
