The cake portion of this is fine. The frosting recipe has a major flaw! Either too much butter or not enough confectioner's sugar. I had to add more too it and ran out bc I didn't have enough. The taste was good, but the consistency was horrible!!

Made this cake last week. This was the: 1. First layer cake I have ever made 2. First cake I have ever made from scratch 3. First icing I have ever made from scratch This cake could not have been easier to make. However, it didn't taste like I anticipated it. The cake did turn out very moist and very rich. I would make it again for company!

This cake is wonderful and I've never been a huge fan of coffee. The coffee flavor is very subtle and it's mostly the moist chocolate cake that you taste. It's my youngest daughter's new favorite cake and I know I'll be making this for her birthday for many years to come! Thanks for the great recipe!!

My kids & I loved this cake. It was not dry & the frosting was the best. Couldn't really taste the coffee in the cake, & the chocolate flavor was mild but there was a "subtle" difference compared to most cakes. The kids asked for seconds.
