Im just now getting into making cakes and I have been miserably failing by makiing everything too thick or over filling and demanding too much from myself... but I just made this cake and it was so simple and fun to make. Most simple cakes are boring and dont have much taste to them but this is fantastic!! LOVE IT!

I have made this cake several times. I also like to put broken up candy bars instead of the butterfingers.

Very easy

My 4 year old daughter loves to make this cake. It is so easy that she can do most of the work by herself. The whole family loves this cake.
