Whip Cream Fruit and Date Cake

We make this cake at least 1 time each year.  Organic whip cream icing paired with fresh bananas and mandarin oranges along with a date cake mixture.  Love to know if  you like this cake best the first day or second.

Two healthy sisters from a health oriented family made this delicious concoction.  They like to call it “Deep Dark Secret Cake” (From the Kitchen of Two Sisters:  A Satisfying, New Approach to Slimness, Vitality, and Health).
