  • This is the best cake I have ever eaten. I was with Barbara Eldridge and she had made this cake and she said I could get the recipe with this Carolina Country. I live in Trinity, NC, love the recipe, Barbara and this book. Barbara is a fine Christian lady I have known her for over 25 yrs, and she is a Blessing ever time I see her.
