Here is the recipie for a cake that I did and posted it on this site. Everyone asked me for the recipie so I thought I would post it. The cake recipie if from the cake doctor and I modified it to use mangos. The filling is a recipie that I got from cakecentral (fresh Strawberry filling) and I modified that. I use a creamcheese buttercream icing! Hope you enjoy it! Jen
