This cake is a hit for anyone that is a peanut butter chocolate fan. It is a 4 layer cake with peanut butter frosting between each layer and chopped up Reese Cups on every layer, with the sides frosted with milk chocolate frosting. To top it off chopped Reese Cups all on top and garnished around the sides. This a signature cake is one that my daughter and I created. This is a time consuming cake, definitely not a quick cake to make.
