  • About This Recipe

    “This makes a large cake, perfect for a pot luck or a family gathering. It is a fairly flat cake–ends up less than two inches high after you have added the toppings. This recipe came from my sister-in-law in Chicago. I had a piece at a family reunion dinner and couldn’t leave without the recipe! Yum Yum!”

  • “What a game and what a recipe! Yum Yum was a smash for the Super Bowl! A refreshing treat after the big game and some “adult beverages”. A couple of sliight modifications really helped too. Both walnuts & macadamia nuts, and fresh crushed pineapple. Bueno! Thanks Sharlene & Kit-Kat!”

  • “What a mistake!I was so intreigued by this recipe that I made it with out a large event to take it to.Do not do that!My mom, my daughter and I had to eat it all by ourselves!! ;-)This is a wonderful, cool refreshing cake.Some little tweaks that I might try next time are to use chopped macadamia nuts instead of walnuts and to whip my own cream, as long as I know that it is in a situation where it will all e eaten at once. (And I do not mean all by me at one time. Must practice self control….)Thanks for sharing Sharlene!!”
