That cake looks fabulous and tasty! Have you ever frozen the cake rounds (unassembled)?

Do they hold up well?

Forget love... I'd rather fall in chocolate!

Sorry, I never have. I only make it when I need it. I've never frozen cake, because I think they get dry, but if you try it and it works, let me know.'

OMG! I decided to blog!

Oh wow. I was just twiddling around and ran across this gem. Holy moly Silversage, that is mouthwateringly gorgeous and I bet it tastes even better than it looks. I'm saving this recipe.

Congratulations on the upcoming wedding!

So Silversage, have the wedding invitations gone out yet? If not, I will gladly come and guard the cake for you.

Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials.
