  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Do not over bake. Cool in pans 10 minutes on wire rack. Remove from pans and finish cooling on racks.
  4. For filling, combine milk, liqueur, pudding mix and topping mix (use all 4 envelopes) in a deep narrow bottom bowl. Blend well at high speed for 4 minutes, until lightly and fluffy.
  5. Split layers in half. Spread one cup filling between each layer and on the top layer. Garnish with chocolate curls, if desired.

*For more of the Irish cream liqueur flavor in the filling, decrease the amount of cold milk to 1 cup and increase the amount of Irish cream liqueur to 1 cup. - A big thank you goes out to Janelle and her guests for this great suggestion.
