I made this fun and flavorful treat for my son's first birthday. He just turned 33, and he still has to have his favorite cake. Kids of any age have a hard time turning down peanut butter and jelly-especially when it comes tucked into cake and frosting!

I'm excited Country Woman chose my cake recipe as the basis of their 35th Anniversary Cake. The CW Test Kitchen bakers transferred the Square-in-a-Square Nine-Patch quilt block pattern onto a flavorful fondant that forms a lovely topping for my tender sheet cake. I've found this recipe to be a real crowd-pleaser. It's popular at potlucks and parties.
