    Wandering back in to print your recipe out and I had to tell you that I love your pictures and intro here, Lura hon. You made this Southern belle giggle. I have always said, us Southern gals come across as so composed, gracious and oh-so courteous and...pure as the driven snow. But if we like you and let you in...then you quickly realize what fiery and passionate creatures we truly are underneath. Very colorful, a bit vampy and delightfully dangerous....ermmm....just like your gorgeous cake.

    I think I need some caffeine...or something. Heh.

    Heh. *Wanders awayyyyy.....with giggles* :) Vickie

    This sounds so good, never tried adding egg whites to my frosting, cake sounds identical to my recipe. Guess the egg whites would make it stand up better, am I right?
