Personal Notes:
I got this recipe from MaMaw D'wanna. It was your dad's favorite cake and I pretty much made it for every birthday. I did alter it a little by adding the pudding mix. Tyler has always liked this cake too, 2008 was the first year in many years that I can remember his not wanting this cake for his birthday. He outted me...and wanted a "Dairy Queen ice cream cake. Can't say that I blame him.
