Forget the fruit pie! This cake takes them all on head to head and comes out the winner. Packed with apples, apricots, cream cheese, and ice cream, every bite is super moist and heavy. The nougat is crunchy and sweet, adding the perfect touch. A hint of cinnamon and cardamom finish off this smorgasbord of well-blended flavors. A perfect ending to a fantastic dining experience, you’ll leave your family (or guests) dreaming of another piece.
