Peanut Butter Fudge Cake

My friend, Denita, is a wonderful cake baker and decorator.  Her sister, Joy, owns Slice of Heaven Bakery in Dothan and Denita has worked along side her sister with this venture.  If you haven't tried the Red Velvet Cookies stuffed with icing that's made at Slice of Heaven Bakery, you have missed the best ones in town! 

Denita has competed for a number of years in the National Peanut Festival Cake Competition and she finished third with her recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge Cake.  I can't wait to see what she will be entering this year!
