Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 13 x 9" cake pan with cooking spray (Pam).

Mix cake ingredients together and pour into prepared cake pan.

Bake for 45-50 minutes until knife inserted in middle comes out clean.

Allow to cool for 20 minutes.

While the cake is baking, mix filling ingredients together and refrigerate.

For frosting, whip cream until soft peaks form; blend in sugar gradually and add vanilla extract.

When cake is done, allow to cool; then fill with milk filling.

You can poke holes in the cake or use a flavor injector.(I use a syringe since I am a nurse).

Frost with whipped cream and decorate.
