This cake tasted like a chocolate covered banana and everyone loved it. The cake part is simple, just make sure it is all the way cool before you cut it. The frosting is the really special part. Using bananas in the whipped cream to make the frosting is such a smart idea. I never would have thought of it on my own. A great recipe.
