Italian Love Cake

My friend Tammy posted on Facebook that she was going to be making dinner for some special friends tonight and that she was going to also be making an Italian Love cake for dessert. I thought that is nice of her, she is always doing nice things for people. But what is an Italian Love cake. I just had to find out.
So I looked it up on the net, and there were a lot of hits. The recipe was the same on every web-site, but I figure that the recipe first came fromDuncan Hines, because it calls for a marble cake mix.
What we are looking at here is two cakes in one. Bottom half is a cheese cake in the middle is a chocolate marble cake and they are both topped off with a chocolate mousse frosting. And that’s a whole lot of cake to love!
And thanks Tammy for bring this great cake recipe to my attention.
