Total time includes frosting.
I made this cake and followed the instructions to the letter. Even though a great photo is shown of a piece of this cake, I don't know how this recipe made it out of the test kitchen, if it was tested. The frosting is too runny. It overwhelms the cake. It's more like icing with cake rather than cake with icing. There are too many better cake recipes out there to keep this one. Out it goes.Read More
I have made this recipe a total of six times. I use a half sheet pan so the icing doesn't overwhelm. Not too much cake or icing. Everyone requests this cake at work for their birthdays.Read More
The cake is very good, but I agree that the frosting needs to be modified. I used 2 cups of powdered sugar, and added about 1/3 cup of milk. The frosting turned out very creamy and delicious, and the cake looks much better than pictured here.Read More
Love the cake...don't love the frosting. The cake itself is very good, It has a very tender crumb and isn't too sweet. But, on the other hand, the frosting is way too sweet, and overpowering. But that might be because the recipe makes 3 cups! Three cups? What were they thinking? That's enough for a layer cake, not a 9 x 13. If I make this again, I'll use half the frosting recipe.Read More
The cake is moist and good. The frosting ruined it. I like peanut butter, but this frosting simply overtakes the cake. I can't taste any cola, only peanut butter.Read More
