This has been our familys favorite summertime dessert for years. My niece always requests this as her birthday "cake". The fresh whipped cream on top balances the the sweet layers below! Make it early in the day so it has plenty of time to chill. It will hold together better when you slice it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
