I made this cake for the drummer of a band that I enjoy who was quitting (to pursue the culinary arts, as I found out later). I tinted the frosting lavender and decorated it with some candied violets I had made previously. He loved it, and asked me out on a date. We now are married, and have two children. Just kidding. He really did like the cake, though.

WHOA, this cake was moist and VERY rich! It didn't come out at all the way I expected but no problem, it was TASTY! It isn't white, looks more like a yellow cake and not at all like the cake mix cakes. Maybe because of using baking soda instead of baking powder? Anyway, I frosted with Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate cocoa frosting. VERY tasty! Not sure why but it needed an additional ten minutes to bake...no problem, though.

This recipe was really quick and easy to make- I loved that aspect of it! The texture is smooth and the taste is buttery. I served it at a small dinner party, and everyone really enjoyed it. Be aware that it's VERY rich, though! So whether you'll like it or not depends on personal preference. :)
