I was looking for something different to bake for our Easter Dinner and decided to try this recipe. This cake is wonderful and very pretty. After reading other reviews of this recipe someone commented that it was too dry, just to make sure I put a big spoon of sour cream in the batter. The cake baked nicely went together well. Very moist pretty cake. I will bake again.
