I named this "Get a Man" Banana Spilt Dessert because I commute by train to work every day. One day I made this for work, to celebrate a co workers bitthday I covered it in plastic wrap and I made it in the clear pyrex dish, so you can see all the layers of fruit etc.....well, that day I never had so many of my male fellow commuters strike up conversation with me, wanting to know what that dessert was!!! So, I said to myself, if I were single, all I would need to do is carry this through the train station and I would for sure " Get a Man"!! Enjoy!!!
