Another beautiful, delicious and special cake, from my ole treasure box of collected recipes. I made and served this 15 years ago for my friend Bill's, Dec.24th Birthday Party. With red candles aflame. It was so beautiful! Never thought to take pictures back then. This picture and recipe was from a Duncan Hine's recipe,I found in a magazine, many moons ago.
