Personal Notes:
You will probably remember this cake as I made it many times for dessert on Sundays when Gramma and Papa came over for dinner. I don't remember ever using the yogurt in the icing, so don't worry if you don't have any. It makes a great dessert and also travels well to put in with a packed lunch.
