This exceptional dessert takes a little extra effort, but it's worth it. The combination of textures–tender cake, fluffy frosting, and a pool of creamy sauce–will delight your family and friends. If you don't have a double boiler to make the frosting, place a metal mixing bowl over a saucepan instead.
