This makes a large cake, perfect for a pot luck or a family gathering. It is a fairly flat cake--ends up less than two inches high after you have added the toppings. This recipe came from my sister-in-law in Chicago. I had a piece at a family reunion dinner and couldn't leave without the recipe! Yum Yum!

What a game and what a recipe! Yum Yum was a smash for the Super Bowl! A refreshing treat after the big game and some "adult beverages". A couple of sliight modifications really helped too. Both walnuts & macadamia nuts, and fresh crushed pineapple. Bueno! Thanks Sharlene & Kit-Kat!
What a mistake! I was so intreigued by this recipe that I made it with out a large event to take it to. Do not do that! My mom, my daughter and I had to eat it all by ourselves!! ;-) This is a wonderful, cool refreshing cake. Some little tweaks that I might try next time are to use chopped macadamia nuts instead of walnuts and to whip my own cream, as long as I know that it is in a situation where it will all e eaten at once. (And I do not mean all by me at one time. Must practice self control....) Thanks for sharing Sharlene!!
