RECIPE BACKSTORY
I got this recipe from the cookbook ELIZABETH ALSTON'S BEST BAKING: 80 RECIPES FOR ANGEL FOOD CAKES, CHIFFON CAKES, COFFEE CAKES, POUND CAKES, TEA BREADS, AND THEIR ACCOMPANIMENTS. It makes a great cake and is really a great looking cake. Much easier than I thought it would be the first time and looks like you have really gone all out. Give it a try guys.
