So, um, what if I don't have a candy thermometer? Because this sounds pretty fantastic. Is there any other way to measure this?

I tried making it once without a candy thermometer and it didn't work. I packed everything into the bundt cake pan and let it set overnight, but when I tried to slice it the next morning, it fell apart. It was still delicious, it just had to be eaten with a spoon! I invested in a candy thermometer just to make it because it really is good!
