I first tasted this at my cousin's wedding reception back in 1964. Back then, it was made with sour cream (which also works in this recipe). This has a little less fat to it. Back then, a serving was only a few slices. You can slice the cakes into wafer thin slices, put them in a bowl, mix with the dressing and serve a larger portion as a real "salad".
