We used to make this cake in the 50's and told the boys that mayonnaise was in it so they wouldn't eat it! It worked until our dad tried it and ooohed and awhhhed...we were busted! LOL

It is now our daughter's birthday cake, and our son's watch out grand kids,,,we may have a new birthday cake favorite in our family. So glad it is EASY to make! LOL
