Oh So Good!

I believe this is the best birthday cake I've ever made myself. My husband who does not like chocolate very much loved it. I made my own cream cheese frosting for the middle and it was soo good! I may have to make this cake for some other occassions. What a perfect cake!

Bananas Foster Fudge Cake

I made this cake for my husband's birthday. Everyone loved it. It was not hard to put together and it looks impressive on the table. Bananas and chocolate are a natural together.


Bananas Foster and Fudge - Fabulous

This cake is moist and delicious. It is not difficult; it just takes some time to prepare. Forget the section of the recipe that suggests refrigerating the leftover cake -there are no leftovers.
