  1. @Ashley….Glad to hear you liked this cake. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser. When i made it, some of the bark pieces were big. Those were hard to cut through. The next time, I used smaller bark pieces and those were very easy to cut. Also, instead of having people cut this cake, i cut slices and put them on plates and handed out the plates. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. thanks so much!!
