Ya'll know how much I love Paula Deen's recipes. Yesterday, I was watching her on Food Network, and she made a Candy Snack Cake! Being the little baker that I am, I decided to make it myself, and look how it turned out!
It looks EXACTLY like it did on the show! I was so impressed with it, that I decided to share it with y'all as well!
