Layered Toffee Cake

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Steve P.

Very quick and easy to put together. A very rich tasting dessert. Using a premade angel food cake makes this a nice nobake dessert for hot weather when you'd rather not turn on the oven. Of course you could make the angel food cake from scratch or a mix if you wanted to.

Fantastic recipe! I made my own angel food cake rather than buying one and it worked great! The cake was easy to frost because the recipe makes a generous amount of frosting/topping - I hate having to "stretch" frosting. It was great the day it was made, but even better after sitting in the fridge overnight. The trickiest part is slicing the layers, but a serrated knife used slowly and carefully does the trick. It's an easy dessert that looks and tastes impressive, which is a 5 star combination in my book!
