This is a delicious cake that is nice enough for a special occasion. In fact it is a
requested birthday cake each year for a number of members of our family. Both the cake
and the icing have a light green color. The cake is slightly dense and studded with
chopped walnuts. The light and creamy icing just melts in your mouth. The green color
makes it a nice dessert for St. Patrick's Day or Christmas as well.
