Absolutely delicious! Just make sure you let it chill in between the cake layers before cutting the cake to prevent it from drooping.

The flavor is incredible! Just be sure to cook it until the consistency is like warm pudding. If it's not thick enough, it will not stay between the cake layers without spilling over the sides!
