Delicious and moist!

This cake sounded delicious as I read the ingredients, so I bought ingredients to make two; one to share, the other to snack on throughout the week. So glad I did! Everyone loved the refreshing taste after Sunday dinner.

The flavor was not bad. I had a lot of trouble with the frosting. It was too liquidy. I tried adding powdered sugar and a 1/2 cup of sour cream but still not solid enough.
