This one takes some time, but for that really special occasion, let them know you cared to make something beyond the norm. It is very moist, holds well over a few days, and the frosting (recipe will follow) is sublime.(based on Cook's Illustrated recipe) If you like this recipe, see others at mybestcookbook.wordpress.com
