Recipe Week 2: 7-Up Cake

Seven –Up Cake  Recipe…

This is a recipe that is well over 30 years.  We found this one in the  Aroma’s Cookbook – a fundraising project at my childhood Church in Virginia.  These cookbooks are treasures that bring back so many wonderful memories.   Our only problem was the frosting…we found that it did not spread but that could be that we just didn’t wait long enough for it to cool, we were anxious to get to the tastin’
