    What's up with this? Show one recipe & post another. Any idiot can take a package of Pillsbury rolls and roll the pre-made dough into balls, stuff in pan & bake. Where is the recipe for the dish made from scratch? All this turned out being was a free promo commercial for the restaurant. Not impressed. Even the frosting is different than what he said the frosting was made of. Stated Karo syrup & not powdered sugar.

    Right on, I went looking for the scratch recipe and find a pre-made one. I'm allergic to a lot of the ingredients in the pre-made. What a disappointment this is!
