My youngest granddaughters birthday was this week and I made her this cake. Everyone thought it was the best cake they had ever tasted. I wrote everything down, which I normally don't do and forget what I did the next time I want to make it. Well, here it is and I hope it will be a favorite in your kitchen, too.
