Personal Notes:
Funny story about this cake... At my home church in White Deer, the men had a cake baking contest and my mom (Shirley) helped my dad (Clifton) bake this cake. Then, as the story goes... Dad paid a little kid to be under the table and when the judges walked by to taste his cake, the kid shook the table (like a real Earthquake)!! He WON!! ;-)
