This is a quick and yummy way to dress up a purchased angel food cake. To keep the plate clean while assembling this pretty layered dessert, cut two half circles of waxed paper to place under the bottom layer and remove them after frosting the cake and sprinkling on the toffee. -Pat Squire Alexandria, Virginia

"I made this for a baby shower and it was a huge hit! Everyone from the youngest to the oldest asked for the recipe. It was so fun to watch the ladies take their first bite. They closed their eyes and sighed in delight. A definite keeper. Easy to prepare and beautiful presentation."

"This cake cook some time to prepare if you factor in chopping the candy pieces (by hand) and layering it all. It was so sweet, nobody at the gathering could eat it. Much too sweet!"
