What a great cake for St. Patrick's Day! I had fun serving this last night at our appetizer and dessert buffet. The cake was pretty and very tasty. I highly recommend refrigerating the cake after you put the topping on so that it can "set up" a bit, because it was very runny to begin with. Also, you might want to wait to put the sprinkles on until just before serving, because they bled all over the top of the cake. Thanks for a great recipe!!
