This is my mom's favorite cake, and I have kept losing and finding the recipe over the years, so I'm posting it here for safe keeping. I should mention, though, that this is not my recipe- it comes from an October 1996 issue of Southern Living. This is a truly wonderful (albeit labor intensive) three layer cake, and I have made it on many special occasions.
