Jelly Roll Yellow Sponge Cake is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ingredients list is wrong The listing of ingredients features clear vanilla extract as the first ingredient and an amount of 2 ounces is shown. This is clearly misleading. One would not put two ounces of vanilla in this cake batter. Please go over the recipes on your website and correct them. Selling your goods is fine - with a link to a place to order them. But deliberately showing 2 ounces of vanilla is not fine. Your users are going to end up with nasty messes instead of delicious cake.
