Waldorf (Red) Cake

Submitted by: DGARROD

Introduction

My husband's sister made this cake a tradition in her extended family. She would bring it to special occassions when the whole family would get together. It is moist, delicious and worth the effort. You'll wow your family and guests. My husband's sister made this cake a tradition in her extended family. She would bring it to special occassions when the whole family would get together.
