    Simple to put together and makes a large cake. I made a coffee butter cream to use in place of the whipped cream because this won't vanish if one night and I have no room in my fridge for the cake. It has been deemed completely worthy of 5 stars by the gents of my house and each send a a special thank you to ElaineAnn. I couldn't locate a 3rd 9 inch pan so mine is a bit odd because the top layer is from an 8" pan. It was done in 20 mins.
