    This cake was delicious. I made it for my family for Christmas and everyone loved it! We finished it in a day. After we stored the leftover in the fridge my mom took out a slice and put it in the microwave. the chocolate oozed out it was so good! I also put little marzipan figures on the cake and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Will make every Christmas.

    This is a fun recipe and is not nearly as difficult as it looks! I make this for my husband's family Christmas party almost every year. It's become a tradition. This will be the first year I actually added the meringue mushrooms and they were easy and fun. I always add some holly leaves from my bushes for realism and added decoration. The filling for us is always chocolate, either ganache or buttercream but if your family prefers, you can use jam or fruit filling or Dream Whip or even ice cream.
