Why is there only a partial recipe. There is suppose to be a filing between the layers & on the top. Are people to guess what kind & the recipe for the filling. Its nice bkerr45907 0920372 stated cream cheese icing but there is still no recipe. I think the cream cheese needs to be made with Mascarpone Italian cream cheese & heavy cream whipped etc. Please when a recipe is given make sure it includes the entire recipe otherwise don't print.

I have made this cake for many years and it is to be frosted with cream cheese icing. It is one of my favorite cakes next to red velvet cake.

Are the three layers meant to be filled and frosted?
