Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
At top of recipe: A slice of gumdrop cake has the rich holiday appearance of a fruit cake but is much less expensive and less tedious in preparation. Omit black gumdrops unless you expect your cake to be very dark. Cut gumdrops into fingertip pieces (I use kitchen shears). Do not chop or grind them.
