This is a very old recipe. A lot of people probably have it. I got it from an old church cookbook the first year I was married because I wanted to make it for my husband's birthday. His birthday is in January and a Snowball cake seemed perfect. I have been making it for him for many years for his birthday. It is his favorite. I recently made one for a Christmas Dinner because I think it makes a beautiful Christmas Cake as well.
