    " It was excellent "

    Made it for my boyfriend's birthday dinner at his mother's house..... talk about pressure! IT WAS PERFECT! I had to do some substitutions (for some reason I could not find peach brandy or schnapps! I was so stressed) but it came out wonderfully! I used a mix of peach nectar and pure brandy instead. I was light on adding the glaze and topping to the cake since his younger sister was present, but put the remaining on the side of my presentation so that the above 21 crowd could add as they saw fit....

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU and sigh.....because I was told I must bake at his mother's home for all events now because they didn't realize I was so talented and it would be great for bonding...yikes! lol but his mom is a doll so I guess it's not so bad lol
