If you have not even learned about this cake, it is due to be a success for everybody soon. I was one of those “crazy” people like a year back but just wanted to check it out after hearing about this from a friend. My husband made the dessert and I was laughing at him when he struggled to fulfill his culinary duties. That is before I sampled it and realized how delicious it is and how quick the preparation takes even for a simpleton such as my husband.
