Elvis Presley Cake (Jailhouse Rock Cake!!) – A family favorite. So simple and easy to make.
Elvis Presley Cake (Jailhouse Rock Cake) is SO easy to make. It is a go to for me when we have a family get together or a pot luck.
It is so delicious and always a huge hit.
I have even made this into cupcakes for pot lucks so everyone can have their own individual “cake” and those were a big hit too!!
I don’t know where this cake got it’s name but I can understand why it’s called “Jailhouse Rock Cake” Because it really does rock! The flavors are so spot on.
As I said making these into cupcakes was a great idea for the pot luck. Just a little more work for me.but this way everyone had their own cupcake or two. As I could see some people grabbing two lol. Who could blame them? Not me. Either way I know you will love it.
Yummy! Make this simple and delicious cake today.
