MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 5, 2011

This cake was a hit at work! They didn't believe I made it-it is so bakery-shop-professional looking! I used chocolate butter-cream icing. It was a hit!

Recipe was perfect. Use a combination of milk and dark chocolate for the best color contrast on top. NOTE: Be sure the top of your cake is not domed or the candy will slowly slide off the cake due to it's weight. Level the top of your cake!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 5, 2010

Made this cake for my grandson's 8th b'day. He and all his friends loved it. Since I didn't have choc. cake mix in the house,I used a red velvet cake mix, and I spread a little seedless raspberry jam in the middle before I frosted the bottom layer.

As for the candy... I went to a candy store that carried all the old fashioned candies that I grew up with, and decorated the top with those. What fun !! If you go the candy store route,it can get "pricey" for the toppings..... but when it's your grandchild, money is no object !! This is a special occasion cake.
