A nice tasting cake that looks great, I can see that kids would love it. I'm not a very accomplised baker so take my criticisim with a grain of salt: I found the cake a little dry (though that could just be my moody oven) also during prep it seemed to make a lot of dishes. (LOL) I broke the cake into chunks and kind of made a trifle with some custard and whipped cream which was deliscioso.
