The cake itself is tasty. It seemed more of a "bread" to me than a cake. It is dense and not moist or fluffy like a cake, but it does have a lot of taste to it. I would leave out the banana extract in the frosting. It had a very chemical taste to it, and all my friends said it would have been better without it!
