    Cooking Tip – Recipe Tip

    Don’t try to save calories and changing to light mayonnaise. It doesn’t turn out well. Scrimp on calories somewhere else because this recipe is to die for.

    Cooking Tip – Frosting Tip

    The taste and texture of this cake is wonderful but you don’t want to overpower the subtleness of it by using a thick frosting. Frostings made from powdered sugar and water with a little vanilla work much better and are much more simple to throw together
