Happy One Year Blog Birthday to Us!

Today is our one year blog birthday! It's been a terrific year filled with beauty, fun and friendship. As a gift to our readers here is a recipe for the most yummy cake you'll ever make. The secret I think is in the separating the eggs and beating the egg whites. The cake is moist and delicious and works for any occasion. It's a great party cake and was given to me by a wonderful friend whose mother put together a cook book of Atlanta recipes (in 1975) - called Atlanta Natives' Favorite Recipes. The recipe came from Mrs. Samuel Barnett (Dorothy Willett).
