Vanilla Wafer Cake

I just found a cookbook that my mother put together for our church when I was 9 or 10 that I had forgotten about! This book is full of recipes from all the old grannies that my mother grew up with, so you know they're good! These women were friends of my grandmother, so I knew many of them as well. Let me tell you, these women can COOK! So, I've decided to post some of the recipes that appeal to me and I think may be something you all would like to try as well.

This is the tenth. I'd never heard of this before. The name intrigued me, and so does the way it goes together. It has vanilla wafers, so it has to be good! Right?! I can't wait to try it. Hope you do too! Enjoy!

**This is yet another recipe from Ruth Evans, who has gone to be with Jesus, and was one of my grandmother's closest friends. Can you tell she was an awesome cook?!**

Note: Photos borrowed from the internet. These are various photos that popped up when I typed in the name of this cake. From what I've seen, some type of fluted pan is always used to bake this cake.
