Italian Creme Cake - Gluten Free!!

I got this off a website but modified it because I don't like to use shortening in my cooking. However shortening could be substituted for the Butter if needed....It turned out delicious! Hope you can enjoy it as much as I did!

    Wonderful! Have taken it to several different dinner parties. Now I get requests for it. High in Weight Watchers points, but very much worth it!
