How Lane Cake Got It's Name

I have had so many people ask me how Lane Cake got its name I decided to do a search and this is what I found out!

Lane Cake is an incredibly rich butter cake, almost a pound cake, with an intense bourbon filling. This cake is not for the faint of Heart! This Southern tradition gets it name from Emma Rylander Lane of Clayton, Alabama , who won a price for it in the State Fair. She first published the recipe under the name “Prize Cake” in her 1898 cookbook “Some Good Things To Eat.” This cake MUST be made from scratch; you cannot substitute a mix in any way. And if you substitute anything else for the bourbon, you do not call it a Lane Cake.
I got the above by googling Lane Cake.
