Made this cake for the first time, and enjoyed it. The texture is nice. It is a bit too sweet for our taste, which is the only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars.

Even with that, I do not think the thin slices of ham and swiss cheese added that much to the quality of the dish although the ham added a bit of color t...
