From Linda Burnette Ottawa Ontario

Linda  first found this recipe in the mid 90's.  She brought the cake to her friend's yearly Canada Day Party, and they loved it so much that she was asked to bring the cake for many, many parties. Linda  became famous for this cake and thought that in the future, if HRH Princess Catherine doesn't have anything to do on July 1, she could make this cake to commemorate her first Royal Tour, and then she could, perhaps, become famous for the cake also!
