My family all love this cake. It is so yummy!
The cake is good but the icing is just a little too sweet. definitely a good idea to add a little more cream cheese and subtract a little of the icing sugar.
Been using for over 35 years
This recipe was super easy and tasty. I don't like super sweet frosting so I used 8 oz of cream cheese in the frosting. Turned out good.
I think there is too much oil in this for me.
