Before getting on with my comments,I want to say " I'm so very pleased to be the first one to rate,review, and photograph this recipe.:) I followed the recipe EXACTLY as it was written(which is something I rarely do). I did use the instant vanilla pudding. It did take sometime to prepare,but it was so well worth it. Let me just put it this way,I'll make them again(but not too often). Made for Culinary Quest 2014. GO TEAM " Cruisin' Culinary Queens " " Keep Smiling :) "
