MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 25, 2013

"This is a delicious cake, however, I would leave out the chunks of cream cheeese. It's kind of gross biting into a chunk of plain old cream cheese. Maybe if it was flavored with sugar and vanilla it would be better. But I will just leave it out next time."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 7, 2010

"My whole family loved this!! It was moist, flavorful, and easy. tip: it's much easier to dice cream cheese when it is real cold."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 13, 2008

"This wasn't very good. It was dry and crumbly, and it had a metallic flavor. I wouldn't make it again."
