"Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time like dew on the tip of a leaf. - Rabindranath Tagore
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs one at a time and beat until smooth. Sift together flour, salt and baking powder. Mix into egg mixture one cup at a time. With mixer running, slowly pour evaporated milk, then vanilla and water. Mix until uniform. Put three serving spoonsful of batter in each of ten lightly greased 9-inch pans, using the back of the spoon to spread evenly. Bake three layers at a time on the middle rack for eight minutes.
Let the layers cool. Run a spatula around the edges of the pans and ease the cake out. Use two or three serving spoonsful of frosting between each layer. (Optional: add crushed candy of your choice to all but last layer.) Cover the top and sides of the cake with the remaining frosting. Push what runs onto the plate back onto the cake.
Frosting Instructions: (Begin when the first layer of cake goes in the oven.)
Melt butter. Stir in evaporated milk (off heat.) Whisk in cocoa until smooth. Return to heat and cook for approximately 10 minutes. (Do not boil or scorch.) Remove from heat and slowly whisk in confectioner’s sugar. Cook slowly until thickened and will stick to back of spoon.
