    Very tasty cake, easy to make. I opted for the "surprise" version, however, all the Nutella dropped to the bottom and turned into a crispy chocolatey base. It was a little disappointing but I covered the whole cake with a thin layer of Nutella to give it a little moisture and decorated it for a birthday cake. Yummy!  -  29 Oct 2017
