Happy August!


This month's featured recipe for Hawaiian Delight Cake was contributed Screen Shot 2019-08-03 at 4.31.09 PMby Collington's Outreach Manager, Sandy Short. "My aunt shared this recipe with me and it was a family favorite growing up. This easy layer cake is a refreshing dessert on a hot day, at a cookout, or if you’re just like me, you can hide it all for yourself! Cake should be baked in a 9x12 pan and coconut is optional. Best served chilled. Enjoy!"
