MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 25, 2009

"I have to say I did make these cakes and they came out gummy on the inside and dry and crumbly on the outside. They flavor was very good, but the consistency was terrible. I would make these again, but change a few things about it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 16, 2009

"This recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of confectioner's sugar, but it doesn't say to add it in the directions, only to dust with the additional sugar after baking. Some might not add the confectioner's sugar if they don't see that it is omitted in the directions."
