Alabama has an official state bird, nut, fruit and even crustacean. The state might soon have an official state cake, a lane cake. The House of Representatives voted Thursday night to name lane cake as the official state cake. The bill now goes to Gov. Robert Bentley for his signature. The layered confection made with pecans, flaked coconut and sometimes a splash of bourbon is said to have been invented by a woman from Clayton. Sen. Beasley of Clayton has been on a multi-year quest to add the dessert to the long list of state emblems.
