GOOD GOLLY MISS MOLLY!! This sounds too good to be true!!

Sounds wonderful and so delicious! Can't wait to try it. yummy Thanks :)

OMG!! My mouth is watering just reading the recipe. Would have to make it without the nuts. I am a little nuts but not a nut lover. I always felt that any dessert that has cream cheese frosting is a melt in your mouth treat. No frying right now. The chef is baking cupcakes.
