Many Many years ago a bunch of my online friends got together to do a mass recipe swap in the hopes of writing a cookbook to benefit an animal shelter. While the cookbook never got off the ground, I saved all the recipes that came out of it and this was one of them. Very simple to make and yummy to eat!

  3. pour into prepared pans and bake for 25 - 30 minutes or till toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool completely before icing the cakes.
  4. for Icing: Combine all the icing ingredients in a large bowl and beat on high till stiff peaks form.
