Gold and Silver Applesauce Layer Cake

My grandmother used to make a cake she called gold and silver applesauce layer cake. It was delicious. I know she gave the recipe to some of the ladies in the church, but I do not have access to their names here in charleston. Does anyone have a recipe that has applesauce between the layers and the layers are gold and silver?


Thanks for the help.
