Notes

DONT GET SCARED by the calorie count. It does not take into account that you have a LOT of leftover cake with these parfaits and you can just serve the sliced cake on its own as another option at your party!
Prep Time is reduced to almost nothing if you buy the cakes!
Most of the ingredients do not include quantities as it is per taste, however the Coconut Marscapone is enough for about 6 parfaits, but you will end up having lots of leftover cake. Now how is that a bad thing? Share it with your neighbors or take it to your local homeless shelter!
Be sure to press down on the layers as you assemble the parfait, so there are no empty air sections!
If using fruit that oxidizes (banana, apples, pears), toss with a little lemon or lime juice.
