      I’ve never tried to make it in a bundt pan, but Im thinking it might not work out that well. Cheese mixture might not cook properly. Thanks for stopping by. :)

    this cake showed up at church coffee & we loved it. Tracked down the baker for receipe. It’s been passed all over to friends & neighbors. They all love the taste & simplicity. I used red velvet mix, chocolate marble mix (very pretty) & other flavors, all delish. Some put chopped walnuts on bottom, even better.
