Ingredients:  
2 cups sugar
2 sticks margarine (soft)
4 eggs
3 cups self rising flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
1 tsp. yellow food coloring (or ever how much desired)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl mix sugar and margarine until creamy. Then add eggs one at a time beating well after each one. Next, add flour and alternate with milk. Start with flour beating well and end with flour. Last add vanilla and yellow food coloring. Make sure everything is mixed well before pouring into pans. Spray 3 nine inch cake pans and pour batter into them. Put into oven on 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Split layers into and spread icing between each layer and on top and sides of cake. (I split my layers while they are warm)

Chocolate Icing - Combine sugar, cocoa, and flour in a large saucepan on stove. Pour in 1/2 of teh can of pet milk and stir up well. Then add the rest of the can and stir. Put on to burner on medium heat and add the stick of margarine. Let it cook and continue to keep stirring. When it comes to a boil continue to let it cook until it gets thick but not too runny. When its is thickened remove from heat and add the vanilla. Split the three cake layers and spread chocolate icing between layers and the tops and sides of the cake.

Personal Notes:
The icing can also be cooked in the microwave the exact same way except in a large glass mixing bowl for about 7 minutes.
