I got the idea for this incredibly easy yet impressive holiday dessert from a magazine. It is now a family favorite—and has been for the last 15 years! It is absolutely gorgeous on my buffet.—Linda DuVal, Colorado Springs, Colorado

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 6, 2011

I can't believe how easy this recipe was to make. I just made one big cake with each cake being a layer. The filling was absolutely delicious & my kids were loving all the different tastes. This was my first layer cake, I'm more of a cook than a baker, & I enjoyed making it. A simple recipe with a huge impact of decadent scrumptiousness!!! If you're an almond lover like I am, the mix of chocolate with the almond filling is out of this world. It pairs wonderfully together. We ate it with a side of rocky road ice cream for my daughters 11th birthday. No store bought cake could compare to the smiles & raves my birthday girl made about this cake. Thank you so much for sharing.
