This is my new favorite cake. I am going to fat on it weekly.

This cake came out amazing. My first time and I got it right. I am a big fan of custard. It was right up my alley. I'm going to have to make another one soon. Every one pigged out on it.

baked as directed. It was a big hit! Will defiantly make it again, and soon.

This was delicious! A new family favorite. I followed the recipe and it turned out perfect.

This is a very good cake and presents well for Valentine's Day. I made it as written. I decorated it as the picture showed with raspberries and mint. I had to bake mine the full 70 minutes.
