Brown Sugar Apple Cake

Sweet Dreams by TracyThis recipes comes from Tracy who has her own web site entitled 'Sweet Dreams' - Tracy describes herself as:

Well, let's see . . . I'm in my (very) late 30's, married and living in a small town in Northwestern Illinois. My husband, Matt is a 'computer dude', he has his own consulting business.

I 'retired' from making jewelry (after 9 years), hoping to be able to make some extra money selling cakes locally. I have had several non-cake related, yet still food-related, orders so I'm branching out. I've already changed my business cards to say 'Baking for all occasions' instead of 'Cakes for . . .'! I also am a Wilton Method instructor, teaching courses 1, 2, & 3 at an Ace Hardware and the local community college.
