      This was something really eye-catching, I was attracted to it's name and tried it today. I added 2 tsps. mango essence, 3/4 tsp. pineapple essence and 1 tsp. banana essence also in addition to the other listed ingredients. Its - A REAL NICE CAKE WITH AN EVEN LOVELIER NAME:) It tastes equally as good as it sounds and has been fun making it. Thank You for sharing it:)
