      What a decadent picture! Perhaps the Royal Family have (or should have) experienced this cake.

      I'm so glad you continue to come up with Southern recipes, Ken. Keep up the good work!

      Sounds delish, Ken! My grandmother used to make jelly cakes like this. She would use homemade grape jelly--as everything was homemade in her time--between the layers.

      Ever heard of a grape pie? There was this elderly lady who would bake my dad a grape pie once a year. Did it taste good? I can't tell you as my dad would eat the whole pie himself. LOL!
