Maybe it was just me, but I followed this recipes to a T. The mix wouldnt pour so I added more milk (making it 1 cup for each of the batters instead of 2/3 cup). Also, the four layers were short and too much. I recommend just making two layers..putting all of the gold in one and all the silver in another.

I didn't like this one very much. I tried making it twice and it just didn't turn out. Very dry. This could be my fault. I don't have a flour sifter, so I just fluff the flour in a bowl with a fork for 10 minuites or so. Maybe I'll try it again when I get a sifter.

I made this for my mother's 85th birthday. It's a BIG cake, but a great choice for a special occasion! The only suggestion I would make would be to add a little yellow food coloring to the "gold" layers. Mine didn't come out very yellow. I used a whip cream type frosting and it was wonderful! Everyone LOVED it! It is a very magestic creation. Definitely worth the effort.
