    This cake turned out so good! The chiffon cake was the first I had ever made and it turned out perfect! The brittle coffee flavored topping was easy as well. It didn't last long, believe me! A word of caution! Make sure your house is cool inside because of the cream topping. This cake will do ya proud if you like to show off your cooking.
