My maternal grandmother, Emma Ruth (Carroll, Tipton) Waits, learned this recipe from an 'Extension' agent, in the 1960's, & a 'family tradition' was born...
We have spread it far & wide w/ our marriages, & sharing' w/ friends... guess i'll spread it a bit further...
So delicious, & the most beautiful pink...!
one more note... personal contribution to this recipe has been..... stabilized whipped cream. i do this so that the 'next day' , it doesn't separate into a gloppy mess... still looks good! i use either a product, called 'whip-it' or gelatin got recipe for gelatin from Wilton...
