    alvinakatz's Note:

    Great way to use up stale or frozen sponge, pound or butter cake. Make sure to remove any existing icing. If using frozen cake, you don't need to defrost it all the way, before dipping in the chocolate. From

      Loved this! The staler the better for the cake, as the chocolate absorbs deeper into the cake.....and you just can't have enough chocolate! This is a keeper for me, as I always seem to have leftover sponge or pound cake when DS isn't home. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.
