MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 3, 2014

This is an incredible recipe! The only thing I oops'd on was putting the cinnamon-sugar mix that was to be sprinkled on the cake, into the frosting. Whoops! I shrugged my shoulders, tasted the frosting, thought it was good, and continued on. I did not sprinkle the top of the cake, but no one noticed. I think the added cinnamon-sugar made the frosting that much sweeter, but i loved it, and so did all of my friends. It's the first successful layer cake I've ever made......mine usually break in half when I remove them from the pan, lol!!!

My friend & I made this & OMG THIS CAKE IS LITERALLY TO DIE FOR. We didn't have cinnamon sugar on hand so we mixed 1 tsp of sugar & 1 tsp of cinnamon together to make the cinnamon sugar. We followed the recipe to the tee with no changes made at all & it turned out PERFECT!
