I don't like marshmallows, so I changed this up a bit. I used white chocolate chips for the pudding filling and sprinkled coconut and minichips over the cake layer, instead of nuts and marshmallows. Then I let some raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries macerate and spooned that over the cake slices. The ganache turned out great. I think I just shouldn't have put all of it on the cake. It was just such a thick top layer that overpowered everything else. I'll definitely make it again. It was a lot of work to make, so I'll save the recipe for special occasions. The berries were an awesome touch, if I do say so myself. :)

Help! I thought I was a pretty good cook but I don't get the pudding part of this recipe. Whipped creme and chocolate bars? How do I prepare this pudding? thanks!

I have not yet made this recipe. But this response is for gramcayo's question about the chocolate pudding. The recipe is not laid out very well and is confusing. Where it says "Chocolate Pudding," that is actually a link that will take you to the ingredients and recipe.

As cindylou52 posted on 02/13/13 -- where the recipe says "pudding" is a hyperlink that will take you to the pudding recipe if you just click on the link. Now, obviously, if you've printed out this recipe and forgot to print out the pudding recipe, too, I can understand your confusion.

This cake looks good, but I was confused by the recipe. I read the reviews to try to figure it out. The recipe doesn't make sense by the directions. Was this on purpose?

I think that when they refer to pudding, they are talking about the ganache made with the chocolate and whipping cream.

i haven't made this recipe yet, but wanted to say if you are going to try and make it, for the pudding layer you need to click on the part in the ingredients listing that says "pudding" (in red letters) and it will give you a separate recipe for the pudding.....then the ganache goes over that layer. Giving this 3 stars since i haven't made it yet - sounds like a good recipe to try for a special occasion.
