This recipe is from my mom. I request that she makes this for my birthday. It takes time to make and is work but it is so good. I recommend reading through whole recipe before making.

So pretty and so delicious! DH and I brought this to a party at my sister in laws house and it was very well received. There wasn't a crumb left on the plate when I went to pick up the plate!
