I made a scaled down version of this after contacting Nyteglori - she was kind enough to zmail me with a scaled down version - that kindness in itself deserves 5 stars !!! It is very easy to do and it has nearly all been eaten. DD frosted it with canned frosting but luckily I tried it before this happened when it was fresh out of the oven !! I think it is best served with whipped cream but frosting is good too . Thanks to Nyteglori for posting
