This is a cake I came up with, while trying to attempt to make the Bee Sting Cake from The Cheesecake Shop. Unfortunately it was NOTHING like that one, but it was delicious just the same! It is kind of like a shortcake (similar the traditional German version of this cake), and is also delicious with cream cheese frosting! Although this is not what I was trying to make, everyone thought it was delicious, and it has already been made twice in my house! I will try again to make the one from The Cheesecake Shop, and post my recipe attempt! :D
