I only tried the cheesecake layer, because I was overwhelmed by how enormous this cake was. It was really tasy! I think it could be scaled down for a more reasonable indulgence.

I think this cake would be fun to make for a kid's birthday party, but personally it was way too sweet and overwhelming for me. The cheesecake layer was tasty, but the multiple layers of frosting was a bit much.

The sweetness of the "cake" part seems to clash with the cheesecake center, making this not as fun as I dreamed it up to be.

The cheesecake layer was amazing! The rest was just a bit much in the sugar department. Seriously, do not attempt to eat all of the layers in one bite, or you're going to have a bad time. The funfetti layers were a bit dry, but you win some you lose some, I guess.

The cheesecake layer was especially good and very creamy.
