Catherine, you've outdone yourself with this. It looks like it should be illegal, and I would love every single bite of that cake! I should not have read this so late. Now I will have to make a special trip to Publix and will come home with all sorts of things I didn't know I had to have! ;-)

Happy Foodie Friday and St. Pat's!
