Made this for Easter Dinner..........Excellent! ED
This is the first 'homemade' cake (not from box) I've made that isn't too dry. Great flavor and looks amazing when completed! There are lots of steps but take your time and it's well worth the effort. As mentioned below by Elizabeth, I added more confectioners sugar to the frosting to make it thicker and easier to spread. Icing quite sweet and wouldn't recommend doubling the icing recipe. Icing is always my favorite part of the cake but this one was just the right amount.
