Recipe Tips

If you’re not familiar with this East Coast dessert, you might think you were getting a cream pie. Actually, this sweet treat, is layered sponge cake with custard filling and then topped with a chocolate glaze. We gave it a slightly updated flavor and made the cake chocolate and used pudding to simplify the custard filling. Vanilla or French vanilla pudding can also be used for the filling if you can’t find white chocolate pudding. Whether traditional or updated, it’s a favorite.

I have made this recipe numerous times and like it! However, one day did not have all the ingredients, so I make the cake, did not cut in in half let it whole and put the glaze on, put raspberries all around the edges, stuck a mint leaf from my garden in the center. Got raves reviews and was asked to make it for an auction for a cancer patient. My received the highest bid of $55.

I will not make this again. The cake was dry and did not taste like chocolate. The icing was not very sweet either. Overall it was dry and bland. No one went back for seconds which is a sure sign of a bad recipe.
