      I had this for my birthday. It's wonderful. It tastes better than any twinkie I've ever eaten. I'm gluten intolerant, so we used the I can't believe it's not gluten! Gluten free flour mix instead of wheat flour. Yum-yummy! I'm making this for easter and I'm going to ice it and put coconut on it.

      The cake part was tasty, although it didn't taste much like a twinkie. I ended up cooking 3 8" round pans for 35 minutes on convection, and the cake was a little overdone. I should have stopped at 30 minutes. (I didn't make the twinkie filling part.)
