MY REVIEW

"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."

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