"everyone loves this cake"

"OMG! When I first tasted this I thought it was too sweet. Maybe no added sugar in the crust next time. But, this is a fabulous dessert. My daughter devoured this and requested me to make it again even before we finished the first one. It lasted a few days covered in the refrigerator too."

"All I could hear were wow's coming from our guests when this dessert was brought out. They said the same thing after they had taken their first bites. This was definitely a winner and a recipe that I will continue to make from now on. The only bad thing about it is that now I will be expected to make this every Memorial Day cookout."

"This is a wonderful recipe. I made this a while back and they were fighting over the leftovers because it was so delicious."

"This is an incredibly delicious recipe! It was a huge hit at our family cook-out. I did vary the recipe slightly by only using 1 banana and not putting the chocolate or caramel topping on top of the whipped cream. I simply put a cherry on top of each slice. It was an excellent balance of flavors!"
