      decadent richness but still light enough for a summer meal. We loved the flavor combination and I loved the ease of starting with a cake mix. I grated some 85% dark chocolate over each layer which gave it the depth of f=chocolate we love. Made as a Family Pick for ZWT6 Looney Spoon Phoodies.

      I made this for our Father's Day dessert!! Although I haven't tasted it since I assembled it, I did taste all the separate parts and it is delicious!! I made the cake and custard the day before and then put it all together with the whipped topping (that I made today), so very easy to get assembled today. Thanks for sharing the recipe Charmie!! Made for ZWT6. ETA: I also sprinkled some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips with the layering. Update: We so enjoyed this cake for our Father's Day dessert. The next day my son came home and ate a helping before leaving to get his girlfriend and go to the college. Next thing I know, my DS and his girlfriend were back here both having a helpings of it before going to sign up for classes and she also loved this dessert, huge hit!!!

      Wow what a terrific dessert! A perfect ending to our Father's Day celebration. It tastes so light after a heavy grilled meal. I absolutely love the whipped topping and the custard came out just perfect! Love this dessert and know I"ll be making it often for potlucks and family gatherings. I did take some liberty and used some mini chocolate chips as a topping as I did not have a block of chocolate for the curls. Thanks for sharing this truly wonderful dessert! Made for ZWT6 Zwizzle Chicks.
