"A really big hit for a birthday celebration! I made in 9 x 13 pan and cut the frosting recipe in half and it was perfect amount for our tastes. (Used full amount of cinnamon sugar for the sprinkling on top.)"

"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!"
