Rated 3 out of 5 by Yoga Baker from It is a dense cake... This recipe is good if you need to use a form pan (ex: bundt pan, house pan, skull pan) since the cake retains the shape and doesn't collapse under the weight. Other than that, if you use a standard circle or square pan,I find the cake to be too heavy and dense, and a little dry when eating. I've made it many times, so I know it's not overbaked and that's why it's dry. Has anyone ever tried sifting the flour? That's my next step.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellen from Turned out perfect! I made this cake for my two tier wedding cake and it was perfect! I had tested out several recipes but kept coming back to this one as it was my favourite. It is a denser but still moist cake with a rich but not too sweet taste. It is important to follow the directions exactly and using baking strips helps to keep the cakes level and bake evenly. The cakes came out with a nice golden crust everytime! Because I was making this for my wedding I baked all of the cakes a month in advance and wrapped each one individually and froze them. They froze extremely well and tasted freshly baked after thawing. Would highly recommend this recipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nay1 from Bad for fondont covered cakes I had a customer call and tell me that although the cake came out amazing and she almost didn’t want to cut into it once she did it was hard and inedible. I always do a crumb coat and chill on my fondant covered cakes but this cake you just can’t put in the refrigerator.
