Although this cake can be made all year round, it looks great on the table on St. Patrick's Day.

This was a very easy and tasty cake. My husband ate 3 pieces before finally cutting himself off. Would make again. Thanks for the recipe!

Very pretty and surprisingly light! I did not use the topping though, because this was made for a fund raiser and needed to sit out on a table all day. This cake got off to a rocky start when I added it to my shopping list. When I got home from the store, I did not have eggs because step #1 says prepare according to package directions which means the cake preparation ingredients (eggs & oil) do not appear in the shopping list or in the nutritional panel. This is a flexible recipe. Think about black cherry jello in a white cake with white chocolate pudding in the topping. Thanks chef!
