MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2012

This cake is a rare treasure for take and appeal. My family went wild for this over the holidays. We are making it a new holiday tradition. The effort in making the cake is well worth the effort. I did not change anything. I did use my own vanilla I make from vanilla beans.
