Reviews for Chocolate Bavarian Torte
"This was really tasty! My cakes came out a bit flat and broke apart a bit when I took them out of the pan so I made the ingredients into a Trifle instead. It was still a hit with everyone and my company took some home!"
"I can't use whipping cream could I use Cool Whip in place of?"
"I LOVE this recipe. My grandchildren call this "Ding Dong Cake" and it's always a winner! The filling really MAKES this cake a success!"
"I LOVED this cake!!!! The cream filling could be eaten by the table spoon!! I made a big one using two cake mixes, using 10 inch pans! Beautiful!!"
