Am thinking each layer of the recipe could stand alone as a separate dessert! If anyone wants to make this for me, please feel free!

Thank you all. I'm getting married April 18, and I'm seriously considering a variation of this for the wedding. There are other equally delicious options, but this one is my personal favorite.

I noticed that in the pic I did the crumb coat with buttercream instead of panache. Either one works.

Amazing!

I'm wondering if the cake could be made on a sheet cake and used as a jelly roll filled with whipped cream!

Oh my think ill have to join a gym for this as I would eat the whole thing.
Fantastic looking, I had a piece of a walnut cake at a Amish bakery and never been able to duplicate it. It had a buttercream frosting on it. your cake sounds like it might be it or very close. But I definitely have to try this one. Thank you
