So imaginative...so innovative and I just had to make it for a guest last weekend, who says she is now my forever friend..not just a friend. HAHA.The taste was super, the presentaion out of this world. She stayed REALLY late to have a second piece.Another 5 won't hurt , I will just stick it on top and hope your stack won't crumble.
