Gave this a go this morning and it was a total disaster, i followed the recipe exactly and the cakes just didnt cook. even after an hour in the oven, very disappointed as was intended as a surprise birthday cake. - 03 Feb 2012
I was expecting it to be much better. It was not worth all the work. Everyone enjoyed it enyway and it was very pretty. I decorated the cake with the cherries, whipped cream, and chocolate shavings. - 30 Oct 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
