      The whole family really enjoyed the flavors. We will make them again. Made as written with no changes. I gave it four stars because these were difficult to remove from the cupcake tin in one piece. They didn't stick, rather some of the layers wanted to seperate because the bottom layer was hard to get access to. Also, the tips of the wrappers were crispy but the rest was not. Next time I will put two wrappers on the bottom to competely line it to aviod the seperation when removing
