Reviews for Mint Cake
"This dessert was excellent. I volunteer at a a soup kitchen, and made this dessert for our St. Patrick's day dessert. The clients loved it. I used an icing tip and bag to fill the holes in the cake, using jello choc pudding cups. After I cut out each piece, I then placed a shamrock choc ontop of the whipped cream. I would certainly make this again."
