This Is Definitely Not Your Typical Cake In A Box

Ok, I know what you are thinking. I am never making this dessert in my life! The reason I shared this dessert was not because I think this will be a dessert that will become viral. I shared this video because this is just a great example of how baking can be so beautiful and creative. Even is you don’t make this dessert, it is still a wonderful video to watch.
