I read the reviews. No parchment paper on hand, so I skipped it. I cut the shortening into the flour mixture with a pastry blender, which worked well. The cake was delicious, but it wouldn't come out of the pan! I bought parchment paper, made another cake, this time using butter instead of shortening, also cutting in the butter, it was really good. I made the filling in a double boiler (I have scorched many custards in a saucepan!). This didn't work very well, as it never boiled. The taste was amazing, although a bit on the runny side (it looked nothing like the photo!!). The glaze was perfect. The recipe itself is a 5. My technique needs some work! I will definitely try this recipe again. I know it tasted good, because even the crumbs got eaten!! Next time, I would like it to have a better presentation.
