Lannette's Chocolate Macaroon Tunnel Cake

Lannette's Chocolate Macaroon Tunnel Cake created by CIndytc

This cake is like the discontinued Pillsbury Chocolate Macaroon Tunnel Cake mix, only I think this is an improvement on that cake! The rich chocolate cake and the homemade macaroon filling made the difference!

    Very good. Made a nice size bundt cake. I only had enough coconut for 1/2 of the filling but that still made enough to go all the way around the cake.

    Made this cake for PAC Fall 09. The cake turned out perfect...I had a little trouble with the glaze as mine was a bit too runny but added some more powdered sugar and it set up nicely...Great fancy cake to take somewhere.
