This rocks! I made this last year for Chrissy (Australia) and my brother and I were fighting over the last spoonful! I am making it for the in-laws Christmas this year and know it will be another hit! Too yummy to stop at one bowl! I also froze the cake and cut it semi-frozen as I found it easier to work with
