This is a fantastic cake, it seems like a lot of trouble and it is not an everyday cake but for a birthday or for a holiday or even a special Sunday Supper, well it is perfect. However, let me say this, thank goodness that some people still like to cook and do not need a mix to bake with, or else wonderful desserts like this would be history.
