      This was a beautiful addition to our Easter table, and it received great reviews from everyone who had a piece. I wish the cake had been a little spongier, to absorb more of the filling. The cake was a bit dense and dry. I made the cakes and filling a day before. I increased the chocolate in the glaze and added a bit more corn syrup to compensate, because I wanted a thick amount of topping. I didn't know whether to buy Instant vanilla pudding or cook-n-serve; I bought instant and then it seemed like that was wrong, so I just made the pudding according to package directions. Overall this dessert was a success, but I feel like it could use just a bit of tweaking. Thanks for posting!
