MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 22, 2013

The taste of this is great, however the "icing" is terrible! It is a sloppy runny mess. The cake tastes amazing, but next time I make this, I will make a lot less of the icing and with only half a cup of whipped cream.

This was the best cake I have ever made and ever tasted. There were 5 adults and not one piece was left. Everyone loved it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 21, 2011

I made this cake for my husband's birthday. Everyone's reaction was OMG! OMG! It is the ONLY cake I've ever made that was completely GONE at the end of the meal. We gave a piece to our neighbor and hedidn't even wait for a fork before he dug in. This cake is very light and flavorful. Very, very good. My daughter requested it for her birthday, too, so we'll be enjoying it again soon.
