Personal Notes:
This was my Mama's (Lottie Long) recipe and as far back as I can remember the taste and smell meant Christmas. Of course, Santa had to share it. It has become a tradition with my family and if I delay too long into the season my kids begin to whisper, "Isn't Daddy going to make 'The Cake' this year?"
