    Swan Valley Tammi's Note:

    For all you who, like me, love cheesecake but aren't that great at making it, this one is for us! A cake/cheesecake combination from Taste of Home with a most delicious frosting. (I recommend making this a day or two in advance, since the flavours are definitely better after the day it's made.)

      Great recipe but I made a chocolate cheesecake filling instead just to change it up. I have made the recipe as stated so its a great way to get a cheesecake without the long wait a traditional cheescake will take to make.

      Made this a day ahead of time, but was definetly better the second day. 4 stars for the cake, 5 stars for the frosting. May try again with Butter Pecan cake mix. Will make again for sure.
