I usually prefer chocolate cake and am not really a fan of fruity-flavored types of cakes. However, this is one of the best cakes I have ever eaten! It is absolutely luscious and I really think it deserves 10 stars! Thanks for posting!
WONDERFUL! I loved this...I do not care for really sweet items so this was a wonderful treat! I used the light cool whip and the light syrup pineapple (that way I could have more than 1 piece!) Thanks for posting this one...its a keeper!
OUTSTANDING! I brought this to a potluck BBQ last night, and it was a HIT! People commented on how light and creamy it was. I arranged mandarin oranges on top for extra fruity-flavor and presentation!
