KellKelzVery nice, I added orange butter icing filling and made my own chocolate topping, with chocolate sprinkles.. Yum! Rated 5 star <32y ago
AlysLandyI don't even want to give it one star! Cake came out flavorless, like styrofoam; the texture fell apart like sandstone. Even with more than adequate greasing it refused to depart the pan with great catastrophe, claiming the life if the cake. Do NOT recommend and will NEVER even think remotely about using this recipe again!!!!!2y ago
erinmommaof3Cake is great. Icing is like slip and slide. Do not use this icing if you have any intention of keeping the 2 layers together.3y ago
