Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I started baking this cake when Carolyn and Doug were still in high school. Carolyn would make pies and Doug this cake and the competition at Easter would begin. Infact, Doug started making this recipe 1 1/2 times so he could make three layers and there would be enough to serve everyone.
