        It should be two layers, one red, one black.

      2. It was devils food like with white butter cream frosting.....

        1. I can't give you help, but you might want to contact the Washington Post which has been one of the major newspapers since the earlier McCarthy was a power. They also have a wonderful (or had) cooking section, and it might be in their archives.

          1. Edit, I thought you might mean Carolyn, but she's a congressional rep.
