This was a wonderful, moist cake! I followed the directions exactly for the cake (except adding vinegar to skim milk to make buttermilk, since I did not have any on-hand), and it took me 1 hour and 35 minutes to bake. My kids don't like cream cheese frosting, so I used the recipe for caramel frosting found in the reviews. I personally loved it, but the caramel frosting together with the cake was much too sweet for the rest of my family. Looking at the amt of confectioner's sugar called for in the cream cheese frosting, I would imagine we would have the same issue. I will make this again, but try to get back on the sweetness somehow. Also - using margarine vs. real butter did not impact this recipe at all.
