"This cake was perfect it was moist and wonderful with ice cream on the side. The holes were the only problem if they are not wide enough the filling doesn't get in the cake. I used a skewer next time ..." See moreI will use a new screwdriver or letter opener unused. It would make a wider hole for the filling to get. It was a greate cake my guest just raved about it. Also I added more peach schnapps to the filling"
