Glad I wasn't the only one is question about the cake crumbs. It sounds like a very delicious cake. Maybe we should give it a try..at least once.

I'm with you, Carmel Mc Hale, i think its a good idea to buy the angle food cake and then add the fillings.

Three Ways to Heaven sounds way too complicated for me, sounds more like kitchen hell.

I think this recipe sounds far too complicated and to have to buy a cake to make a cake sounds too offbeat for me. If anybody tries this I hope you will let us all know how it turns out.

Hi Blair - I must assume that you want me to purchase or first make an angle food cake then crumble it up - right, thanks Carol

Hi ww0798 9590474, cullscorner, and cken: I think you can buy a pre-made (and inexpensive) cake and crumble it for these purposes or use cookie crumbs, if you like. Thanks! Blair, Editor, RecipeLion.com
