I varied this just a little. I made the cake as directed except baked it in a 13x9 pan. While it was still warm I made the icing. I didn't let it get quite as thick as gravy. I poked holes in the cake and spread the icing over. TO DIE FOR!!!

Very good cake. Loved the frosting. It was different than the recipe I used many years ago and better. I used cake mix with pudding all ready in it.

Aunt Ruthie made this cake years and years ago. She passed in 1975. She also made the Red Velvet cake, a cake with candy orange slices in it (you flour the scissors to cut them up) and many good pies! The secret is a really delicious crust!
Aunt Ruthie, this is for YOU!!!

I made the "cake" portion of this recipe for my inlaws for their birthdays and it turned out absolutely wonderful! I didn't use the frosting/icing recipe, but instead made my own cream cheese/whipped cream frosting, decorated the cake with strawberries. I brought what was left of the cake into work to share and my co-workers loved it too. They commented on how moist it was and said it was one of the best cakes they have ever had. I will definitely make this cake again!

My son was sick over the weekend so we had 7-up in the refrigerator. We were all laying around the house and wanted something a little sweet. I had a box of cake mix in the house so I thought that I would look up recipes for yellow cake mixes. Not only did my 3 year old and 7 year old love putting 7-up in the recipe, we had a delightful surprise after it was baked; the most moist, sweet and wonderfully delicious dessert!!! My husband ate 3 pieces before his basketball game(oops!) He can blame that one on himself! Yummy!!!! Yummy!!!

Read my (true!) story before you consider making this cake. My husband and I were healthy, lean, fitness freaks who enjoyed occasional desserts. Then I made this as a birthday cake and it was so addicting we locked ourselves in the house all weekend, didn't work out, and hid in the kitchen eating all the cake. I used diet 7-up and sugar-free white chocolate instant pudding mix, but it still isn't a balanced breakfast :o) The filling I made was a citrus curd whipped with marshmallow creme and the frosting was cream cheese, powdered sugar and the rest of the curd mixed together. The cake is moist and needs little filling - great flavor and texture on its own.

Note: we live above 5000 ft. and did *not* adjust the recipe for altitude, so I suggest following it exactly at least up to 6000 feet above sea level.

Seriously, just make it when you have 10 people over to help you eat it all in one sitting or you may turn into obsessive cake fiends like we did.
