    My husband loves this cake. It is often requested as his birthday cake. It's really not a cake per say, but it takes and looks great.

      love love loved this cake! I am not good at baking and this turned out so-ooooo good! This is a very simple recipe and everyone loved it. I also used a spring form pan and cooked it about 5 minutes longer than called for. The only thing i would recommend maybe would be to freeze right before cutting so it doesnt make a mess. Thanks for the recipe!

      This looks very elegant and was easy to make, but I was expecting this to be on par with homemade cream puffs. However, I think I have expected too much. The flavor of this is extremely mild, even more mild than plain vanilla pudding made from mix. The most disappointing part to me was that the flavor of the bottom crust was not very distinguishable from the pudding mixture itself. I would recommend halfing the recipe...except for the bottom crust and making it in a 9 x 13" pan instead of a cookie sheet. In conclusion...if you are seeking a "cream puff like" dessert like I was...just make regular cream puffs, with homemade vanilla pudding and no cream cheese and a dollop of whip cream on top. Even though they are more labor intesive the distinct flavors of different parts of the dessert are more satisfying in the long run. If you just are longing for cloudy creamyness...this dessert will suit you perfectly. ***I am editing this review to give it more stars...because several people who ate this dessert when I made it have told me how much they like it. I guess it just goes to show the differences in personal taste.

      LOVED IT! What a treat! I made it in a round springform pan, and it was looked like a fancy gourmet dessert. Plus, it tasted as good as it looked. Made for PAC, please see my rating system as I grade tougher than most.
