Personal Notes:
At our house, we sometimes call this the "Homecoming Cake." When Cole and Clay were going to Homecoming their Senior year (2008), several couples gathered at one of the girl's house for pictures and dinner. Their friend's father grilled steaks and I made this cake for the first time and took it to their home. It was absolutely beautiful and everyone said that it tasted even better than it looked. Enjoy!
