I won a blue ribbon at the AT&T cook off in 1987 with this one. The cake is one most of us know but the frosting is different. It was printed in the Valdosta Times newspaper last August when our Church cookbook was printed. "25 Years of Good Cooking at Westside." The little milk cartons of frozen berries are what I use. They have sugar in them.
