Peter Paul Mounds Cake
Old Recipe Detective Blog Request


The request: I'm looking for a recipe for a chocolate cake. That has icing that looks like the inside of a mounts candy bar, with cherries added to the top. I'm thinking the name of the cake was Peter Paul Mount cake. Could someone please help me with this? Thank you, Patty
