Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Carol Jessup, makes this for every church event due to the high demand from the congregation and pastor. The pastor always manages to cut out a little corner of the cake before anyone else, so come serving time there is always a corner piece missing, thanks to the church taste tester.
