  • Children's cake

    • Nichill on March 30, 2015

      Exactly as described. Very straightforward. Children wolf it down. Can be cut into lots of small squares, at least 25 servings.

  • Cheesecake with fresh raspberries

    • TLouise on March 21, 2021

      Very easy, didn't crack on top and tastes amazing. I wish the texture was a little firmer but overall it was very good.
