Rated 4 out of 5 by Livi from Great taste! Needs 1/2tsp soda (instead of 1) I've made this cake a number of times and love it! I noticed the first time I made it that the center rose more than normal and than sunk after taking it out. It's a simple fix - the excess rise is caused by too much baking soda, thus causing it to have an opposite reaction (sinking) once it cools. I cut the baking soda from 1 Tsp to 1/2 tsp and it comes out perfectly every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by amyliz1986 from I have used this cake several times for all different occasions. I have always had good luck with it. It tastes great and it decorates easy enough. It yields way more than what the recipe says. I used 2 batches to make 100 cupcakes. I don't think that I strayed from the recipe, but I have had different results than other reviewers. My cake never falls.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shybaker from This cake repeatedly fails to rise in the center. I don't have this problem with any of the other cakes I've made, so I agree with other users that it's the recipe or the instructions. Sure it tastes good, but it sinks in the center every time so who cares what it tastes like! I've tried more baking soda, and mixing it less, and get the same results consistently. I guess it would work for cake balls, but that's about it. Disappointing!
