With a name like that, how could you not be intrigued? And yes, the method for a cake with just a massive name is also quite detailed...not something you will be just whipping up when you have a spare 10 minutes.

But, I dare you to give it a go ;) All the details (and delicious photos) are here.

Maddie over at li'l magoolie featured this amazing tutorial from i am baker recently...and I have made a pact to make it for my DH for his next birthday (shhhh...don't tell). Probably using different colours/flavours, and not looking as perfect as i am baker's version, either!
