This is excellent. I made it for dessert for Mother's Day and everyone loved it.

I first made this a couple of years ago for my manager's birthday. It was a HIT! I couldn't believe something that was so easy to put together tasted so decadent and looked so professional! This has become a staple cake for me, for special occasions and other events.
