Share it:

I searched long and hard for this one, and finally got it from a chef at thier corporate kitchen!

"This was delicious. I made it for a Boxing Day family party and it went over well. It was pretty simple to make, but I'd suggest doubling the icing recipe so that you can ice the sides as well, as it doesn't look very 'pretty' I garnished with walnuts on top!"
