{Recipe from

This is so good!!  It's moist and yummy and delicious!  It's "to die for".  I love it.  It's amazing and quite easy to make.  And I think it probably stays good for a while and moist and everything it seems.  But I don't know for sure because with 14 people, this cake hardly lasts a day!!  And watch out, you might be a big fat pig . . . if you're anything like me.  Ooops . . . now you know how big a pig I really am!!

But I didn't take any pictures of this!?!  Not sure why! Oh, and this is okay when it's warm, but I think it's the very best when it's cooled down.  Personal opinion; not sure what other people think:)

Anyways, have a wonderful day, and if you made something, link up below!!
