This vintage recipe was mom's special occasion cake - sublime and delicate. Choose any flavor of frosting. I like to use a buttercream vanilla or chocolate but it depends on the occasion. Photos show a buttercream chocolate frosted and a single layer buttercream vanilla Easter cake. Now that's one the Easter bunny doesn't hide!.
