 Hawaiian Wedding Cake
"I got this wonderful recipe from a cousin whose husband was Hawaiian," notes JoAnn Desmond from Madison Heights, Virginia. "I've changed it some to reduce the fat and calories, but it still tastes as rich as the original. It's very simple to make...and guests will love it. Enjoy!"
