This is my mom's recipe that she had been making for years until I started to help her out in the kitchen and decided that I wanted to take on the task of making it. Now my daughter loves this recipe sooooo much that she has voluntered to make it every year for the pass 7 years and she also makes it for her potluck and Holiday events with her friends and in-laws. It is also a local favorite here in the islands. I think I will go outside the box and get a little daring and change up the cake mix and the frosting. I'll let you gals know. :+) Sorry, I can't find a nice photo online of this cake. I wished that I had started taking food photos long ago. :-( I will provide one as soon as we bake one for the Holidays -Thanksgiving!
