Betty's Tip: Described in the 1906 romantic novel "Lady Baltimore" by Owen Wister, this layered white cake quickly became a hit with its filling of raisins, nuts and fruits, and boiled white icing. You're sure to enjoy this easy variation of the original confection, which uses cake mix and fluffy white frosting.
