MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 2, 2010

"I first tried this recipe for my daughter's 13th birthday tea party. I wanted it to be special and memorable. This dessert was a hit! Not only did it look fabulous on the table, but it was everyone's favorite dish. I've since made it numerous times and always with it receiving rave reviews from my guests."
