    This recipe took forever to make with expensive ingredients. I ended up throwing it away. No one liked it.

    This cake was very good, great flavor combination. Probably the best cream cheese frosting i've had. The crumbled toffee crunch in the cake gave it an extra sweetness. i made this as a test for bakeshop and here are pictre of the finished cake, the way i did it: http://minameenah.blogspot.com/2010/06/bakeshop-test-out.html

    This cake is amazing. The coffee toffee is excellent. I made it for a friend's bday in September and it was gone in less than an hour... and there were only 5 people in the house. It is a large cake so it will probably last a while if you take your time eating it. The cake part is perfect, the frosting RICH! Exactly how it should taste. Thank you!

    This is a GIANT cake. Like, huge. Twenty servings for people than can eat entire cakes in one sitting maybe :) You could easily get 2 cakes out of this so feel free to cut the recipe or freeze half of your cake layers for another date. The cake is dense, full of flavor and just wonderful but it's the cream cheese frosting and toffee that really steal the show! and, I disagree with the previous poster - the ingredients are fairly inexpensive unless you really never bake and don't have any of the spices on hand I guess. The most expensive was buying the ingredients for the frosting but it's worth it. So, very, very worth it.

    We've made this twice in 5 years and it is a great cake. As others have said, HUGE with servings for 20. It takes a long time, but that's part of the fun--it is a good holiday baking project. Don't think you'll throw it together fast, as there are tricky parts including the slicing of the layers and getting the temperature of the icing cool enough to spread correctly. A great family project that has a nice wow factor when done, and tastes great!
