MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 13, 2013

The only thing worse than this cake recipe is the recipe for the icing. The cake was not sweet enough and the texture so dense it tasted like a stale terd. This cake may be better used as a pretty decoration..just make sure you don't allow your guests to eat it.

I read the reviews and saw the ups and downs. So, I made sure the egg whites were at room temp, and everything was exactly like the recipie. It looked too small in the pan, but when it tested done, I took it out. Way too packed.......but I did the frosting anyway. But, then I took a step back, looked at it and couldn't make myself serve it at a dinner. It's deep 6 in the bottom of my trash can!

It was very tasty, however it was a litle heavy. But my husband loved it and since we are both watching our sugar and weight I was more than satisfied with it. I didn't top with the chocolate since with only the two of us and we limit ourselves to one piece a day I felt it might get sticky. I just added low fat whipped topping as we ate each piece.

I didn't have any whipped topping so I just used whipping cream. The cake turned out very nice. Also, it wasn't too sweet.
