Top Review by Sydney Mike

I was a little concerned about just how this would turn out, but shouldn't have been, 'cause it is A GREAT TASTING DESSERT, & I particularly liked the topping combo! Also appreciated its ease of preparation! Would definitely like to make this one again! [Tagged, made & reviewed as part of my Let Them Eat Cake! theme in the current My 3 Chefs]
