"Milky Way" Cake

I first had this SINFUL cake 25 years ago at the office where I worked. It was always requested!

While it takes quite a while to make (it is worth it - yummy) I do it in two days - the cake the first day - icing the second.

After frosting cake needs to cool overnight or several hours before cutting
