Tip 1: Size Wise--Savor a serving of this crowd-pleasing dessert on special occasions.
Tip 2: Substitute 1-3/4 cups of your favorite variety of candy, such small round hard candies or unwrapped chocolate candy coins, for the candy-coated chocolate pieces.
Tip 3: Make Ahead--For added convenience, the cake layers can be baked ahead of time. Tightly wrap each cooled cake layer in plastic wrap and freeze up to 2 weeks. When ready to serve, thaw cakes at room temperature before using to prepare dessert as directed.
Tip 4: Shortcut--
If you have 4 (9-inch) round pans, you can prepare and bake all the cakes at once to save time.
