Layered Toffee Cake

This is a quick and yummy way to dress up a purchased angel food cake. To keep the plate clean while assembling this pretty layered dessert, cut two half circles of waxed paper to place under the bottom layer and remove them after frosting the cake and sprinkling on the toffee. -Pat Squire Alexandria, Virginia

    if you freeze the Heath bars and then hit them with a meat tenderizer it is so much easier - how I have done it for years.

    I made this for a baby shower and it was a huge hit! Everyone from the youngest to the oldest asked for the recipe. It was so fun to watch the ladies take their first bite. They closed their eyes and sighed in delight. A definite keeper. Easy to prepare and beautiful presentation.

    This recipe is excellent! One of my all time favorites. I'm not sure about the negative reviews for this, my question is did they read the list of ingredients before making it? It's absolutely wonderful, I would not change a thing. Thank you for sharing this.

    This is fabulous! My grown daughter asks for this every year for her birthday cake. No problem whipping this one up! Yummy!

    This cake cook some time to prepare if you factor in chopping the candy pieces (by hand) and layering it all. It was so sweet, nobody at the gathering could eat it. Much too sweet!

    I made this once and I was very disappointed in it. OVERLY sweet and that's a lot coming from me since I have a huge sweet tooth!! One of the only TOH recipes that I really didn't care for.
