"I have made this numerous times. It is delicious! A gal I knew was getting married and tasting various cakes for the wedding/reception. She said this cake exceeded the taste of any of those she tasted for her wedding. You will not be disappointed with this recipe. I sometimes don't put the glaze on it but let people drizzle it on a piece themselves if they want it on the cake."
