I made this one night for myself & my family & everyone LOVED it! It wasn't messy but it did take ten to twenty minutes longer to prepare & finish in the oven, but it came out DELICIOUS!

This a review for the frosting. I made a different recipe for a cake and put the frosting on while hot. The frosting had lumps of pwdered sugar in it. Be sure to sift the sugar. I still think the frosting was too sweet. I'd use a little less sugar.

This cake was 'da bomb'! I made two substitutions: I replaced one cup of flour with one cup of whole wheat pastry flour & I replaced one cup of sugar with one cup of Splenda for baking. It baked for 40 minutes and disappeared in about the same amount of time! It was quick and easy; just follow the directions to the letter, baking for 40 minutes.
