    this recipe is sensational! I used it this past weekend to create a very special small wedding cake for my daughter. Banana cake with this filling and caramel icing large enough to serve 40 people was devoured in seconds by 20 people. thank you for sharing this recipe. I plan to use it again soon for a cake for my parent's 65th wedding anniversary. It has found a number 1 spot in my bakery. Thanks again.
