    I can't remember if I told you that I made this cake or not. I would've taken a picture of it, but mine looked a little messy. lol We weren't home much so we actually enjoyed it for about 3 days w/ it stored in Tupperware. Each day that went by it was moister and better! I plan to make-and-take this, or for company, I will try to make it a day early to let it "age." I'm thinking I'll wait to put the frosting on the day I serve it.
