This is a FUN cake to make! It is very moist and yummy--a kids and grown ups favorite alike. Believe it or not, this really does work. Serve with whipped cream--so good!

This cake was a great surprise, for some reason I thought it would be really sweet but it turned out just right and it was so easy to make, my 9 year old son helped me. I forgot to buy whipped cream so I used vanilla hagen das instead it it was really Yummy. Thanks for a great new desert idea!
