"If you are old enough to remember the "Pillsbury" Butter Brickle cake from the 70's, you know that this cake tastes nothing like it. The cake was dry and the icing too rich. Even with Heath bars crumb..." See moreled up in the icing...it just didn't taste like the Butter Brickle cake I remembered when I was much younger."
"This was my first experience baking a cake from scratch and it was great! I made it for my husband's birthday & he loved it!!!..." See more"
"This is GREAT! I've made this several times for different occassions and its always a hit! -I cut it into bite sized pieces and put them into little cupcake cups on a tray -that way none gets wasted..." See more b/c some people think its too sweet. I've also ground up some hazlenuts and pecans and sprinkled them over the top when it is still warm."
