For my Daughter Danielle's Birthday I made her this cake. No recipe, just her description of a cake she had at a restaurant in town. It was a lot of fun to create. It is a semi-homemade cake...but as I said "Can it be Real"...As she ate it she was so content and took it to her fellow Deputy Sheriff's and they asked her if they could marry me...LOL. It was a hit!!
