MEMORIES FROM MICHAEL DON GEIGER:This was my brother Skip's favorite cake that my Mother baked for him every year on his birthday. I never knew this until late in life and Mom let the cat out of the bag! So, I made her give me the recipe and now my wife, Donna will make it for me. Who knew my brother actually ate cake!!!
