Notes

Note: Instructions for a double-stacked cake (pictured): First, find two round cartons (we used two plastic cartons that once held our grocery store’s homemade almond butter.)  Fill each with the cake and frosting on top and freeze for an hour.  Once ready, remove the carton by cutting out the plastic or poking a few holes at the bottom and pushing it out from the bottom. Stack the two cakes and add walnuts on top.
