Made this for a small group which included several people with nut allergies, so I did leave out the optional walnuts! Other than that, though, the recipe was followed & we had a delightful, satisfyingly light dessert, thanks to you! Really appreciated the easy of preparation & it looks so great . . . & IT IS! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block recipe tag]
