“This is from an idea in a 2005 Woman's World Magazine. I couldn't get many of the cookies mentioned in the article, so I used what my grocery store had. The Bundt cake I used was the Triple chocolate from Sam's Club, but any cake could be used, store bought or homemade. You can also use a frosted layer cake.”
1 cake
