"Amazing!!! This is one of the best summer desserts I've ever tried. I made it for a family picnic and everyone raved and begged me for the recipe. The only change I made was to add 6 oz of cream cheese to the butter mixture. Cannot wait to make this again"

"This recipe brought back awesome memories of my mother-in-law. Many years ago we would go out every Friday night for a fish fry at a little diner and we always topped off our dinner with a piece of banana split cake. The waitresses would even save us a piece if they were about to run out! I wish she were still on earth so I could surprise her with this cake. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe."

"This cake was awesome-after preparing the filling it didn't look like it would be enough but if your crust is chilled and you use a butter knife to spread it, it works great!!! Made for a birthday party for my Mom and we scarfed it up. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
