    My friend Roz found this recipe in the newspaper and it is just delicious. So easy, too. The original recipe called for whipping cream, whipped.. but she used Cool Whip whipped toopping and it was VERY good.

      I made this cake to take to work and it was easy. I was a little leery of putting the cream filling on the top of the cake, so I opted for a chocolate ganache instead. I will also sweeten the filling a little more the next time I make it. It was a hit with my co-workers. Thanks Sheryll

      #2 son, age 12, had to bring a German recipe to a class party. This recipe was easy enough that he could do most of the work himself. The filling tastes a lot like apple dip, and the kids like it. The one suggestion I'd make, for people more kitchen savvy than my son, would be to use a heavier torte batter, rather than box mix. Trying to slice layers on a box mix cake is a challenge. Our layers came out a bit lopsided. I've made torten before, and my regular recipe is easier to slice neatly. We compensated for some sloping layers by piling the filling on extra thick.
