Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe card is written in Kathy Rains' writing, and is attributed to "Gram Rains." I am not sure if that's Kathy, or Anne Rains, but I assume the latter.

The recipe card says that this can be frozen, though I cannot really think of a time when cake would last long enough to freeze it at our house.
