Reviews for Chocolate Cannoli Cake
"This cake was just a little too moist and the ricotta mixture sank to the bottom. Weird."
"the family loved it!!! personally, i thought the smell was quite odd however"
"The cake is better a day or two later. Wonderfully moist. I added some icing made of lemon juice and powder sugar and drizzled on top. It's a keeper."

"I made this cake this week and it is delicious. I will make it again."
"This was absolutely delicious! I made it a second time and used equal amts the reg. flour and the whole wheat flour with great results!"
"This cake was just too rich for us. I substituted Kahlua for the coffee in the ricotta mixture, so maybe that is what made it too rich. I will not be making this again."
