      My husband made this yesterday for his fellow teachers they had "memories" day at school and were to bring something that brought out some sort of memory. He chose this because a very dear friend of ours used to make this for us when we lived in Honolulu in the mid-90s. The teachers ate it up, it sure didn't last long! From 9/16/2006: I haven't had a chocolate eclair cake in a LONG time. This was SO good! We used fat free pudding, but everything else the same. Yummmy!

      I made this for my fiance's office and they loved it. The only thing I did different was use White Chocolate pudding (I don't like vanilla pudding) and the new "pourable" chocolate frosting. Next time I will try the Cheesecake pudding.....YUM!!
