Wonderful recipe.Beautiful presentation. Someone said it looked like it came from a very expensive bakerie.I used a French Vanilla Cake mix and sugar free intant vanilla pudding. I would advise to chop the nuts VERY small. The cake is so moist, that its hard to cut a nice clean piece when you hit the nuts. I baked mine in an Angel Food pan and had no trouble with any leakage. Wonderful hight, but I did have to bake for 65 minute.Thanks for this great recipe.
