I have many memories of being a kid. Back when I grew up was a good life. The one occasion that I will never forget and one that was a very sad moment was when I came in from outside playing with my sister and friends and found my mom crying in the living room. It seems "The King" Elvis Presley had died and the world seemed to stop for a short period of time. This past week was the memory week of the day Elvis died all those many years ago. In many hearts the King will live and his music for sure will never be forgot. The cake recipe I share here brings back some of those earlier moments of the reign of Elvis Presley when life seemed so much easier.
