This recipe is pretty good, I must say I enjoyed it a little too much, its meant to serve 24 people, lets just say only about 4 people got to try it after I had finished my "Quality Control Taste Tests". Hope you enjoy it as much as I did and to everyone "eating healthy" this year, I give you two more weeks before you move on back to the dark side..warm,sugary,buttery,creamy,luscious bites of cake ;)
