I just saw you make this on Paula's Home Cooking. I looked so good i had to look up the instructions to make it for my family. Thank you for sharing all your wonderful recipes. I make your gooey butter cakes all the time and pretty sure this one will be a hit as well.

I LOVE this recipe! It was the perfect recipe for my family gathering. I recommend it to everyone that asks for a recipe suggestion. Thanks Paula for this. One thing I added to the recipe was crushed graham crackers as a layer between the custard and glaze. It was yummy!!!

Our favorite dessert recipe! Always the hit of the party! Our preference is to bake a yellow cake and use that instead of the angel food, but it is fantastic either way. Yum! And to the person below----it tastes even better the next day!

I have prepared this dish before; however, I was wondering if the cake would become to soggy if I prepared it the night before?

This has become a new family favorite. This dessert is perfect for the Christmas holidays with its rich red and white layers. It is relatively easy to make and I guarantee that your guests will ask for the recipe.

This recipe is fabulous!!!! Although, I tweeked it just a little bit because I didn't want to use the frozen whipped topping. I made homemade whipped cream and then added the cream cheese and condensed milk to that. Oh my! It is wonderful!!!! As usual Paula didn't let us down. Paula I would love to meet with you and cook with you. It is a dream of mine! In fact I would love to show you how I did this recipe!!!

I really don't know where to start with this recipe because it's so much to talk about! Maybe the custard, maybe the filling with the custard..idk!! smile This is so delicious!! I made this last night and since I have more custard leftover, I'm pretty sure I will make it again once my first cake is all gone! I'm actually eating some now lol.. Thanks Paula!!
