I only used the custard and chocolate parts of this recipe. I was afraid to use the cake part of this recipe, based on the negative reviews, so I used just a Duncan Hines Golden Butter mix. As it turns out, the boxed cake mix was the highlight. The custard was tasteless, and didn't set up well, and by the time I was ready to serve the cake from the fridge (about 4 hours after assembly) the chocolate top had become a tarmac. This cake was for my husband's birthday, and I actually had to cut a hole through the topping with a paring knife to insert a candle. The layers slid apart while eating due to the runny custard, and the amount of force needed to cut through the chocolate tarmac. I won't use any part of this recipe again, but thanks just the same.
