Tropical Dream Cake

Sandy Griffith


If you were stranded on a Tropical Island that had plenty of limes, pineapples, mandarin oranges and plenty of them just for the would think you were dreaming!

Since I love these fruits, I thought there has got to be an easy, simple, and sweet way to put them all together....dreaming of a mouth watering recipe to get the rich taste from each of these fruits....I came up with "Tropical Dream" and it has been a family favorite ever since I dreamed of a Tropical Island of my favorite fruits.....YUMMY!
