My daughter needed a recipe for her International festival at school. We came accross this recipe at this site. It is a nice recipe for beginner kitchen kids. The taste was such a success we ran out of Marquesa before the festival ended. Several teachers asked for the recipe. I sent them to Recipezaar.com Thank you! Now this same recipe is being used in a fair contest for baking and tasting. Greetings from Michigan.
