This is one great cake! I added some nuts to the topping which turned out to be a lovely addition. After all, who doesn't like nuts? I know we do! The cake was moist and the filling was delish. Mmmmmmm good!

I finally got around to making this and it was well worth the wait. My kids and hubby couldn't thank me enough for making this for them, and it was so darn good I had to agree with them, it is one of the best ones I have made to date! Love the glaze and cheese filling. All in all a great combo to be enjoyed many times in the future!
