Another by gosh and by golly recipe from my collection. This has been a good standby for over 35 years and everyone loves the cake and of course want the recipe. Either a dessert or cake depending on how you finish it off depends on you. But extremely tasty.

Notes: After cake has cooled wrap in foil and allow to mellow in the fridge for 3 days then do as you p;ease for serving. The following is the icing I love to put onto this cake as it almost like a whipped cream and oh so deliciouMock Cream: 4 tbsp. flour 1 c.milk 1 c. butter 1/2 c. crisco 1 c. sugar 1 tsp. clear vanilla MIx the flour and milk and place ina small pot and cook until thick. COOL. Beat the butter and crisco for 4 min. Add sugar and beat another 4 min. Add cooled milk flour mixture and vanilla and beat for 4 min. more. Store covered in the fridge or use immediately if in fridge let stand at room temp. to soften. before using. This has to be the most wonderful tasting frosting I have ever made and the first time I have given the recipe out. Somethings I hold sacred and this is one. It is a terrific white recipe and enjoyed by all. I have been begged for the recipe but it seems the ones who do the begging are the ones who do not share with anyone also. More friend
