      OMG!! This was the best cake ever. I made it for my brother's 22nd birthday since he wasn't home to celebrate his 21st. The best way I can describe it is to say that it's a white russian poured onto a cake. My family is requesting it for the fourth of july. I served it with berries crushed and mixed together with sugar and some apricot brandy. I then topped it all with whipped cream. YUMMY!!!!!

      Yep, one hell of a cake. The topping wasn't all absorbed by the cake but no matter, this is delicious. Better as it ages too and rich enough that it doesn't need the extra whipped cream (or the extra calories). Not a cake I'd make often but just it case, it's going into a permanent cookbook. TFS
