I think we need a bigger cake... This cake is quite nummy, but a horrible MESS! The cake itself is very thin and dense, and the icing is on absolute overload. I had to switch the plate I was icing on three times because it kept pooling over! In then end, I even had some left over in my hair. Haha. Anyway, the cake's flavor is definitely different (the unique spice blend was what lured me to this recipe), it almost reminded me of French Toast, but the lemon extract gives it a pinch of zest that separates it from any breakfast specialty or other cake. The icing topping it all off, though, was definitely THE icing. It's the only chocolate flavored icing I've ever thoroughly enjoyed, perhaps too much. =)

I was looking for something a little different and this definitely hit the spot. I even forgot to add the two extracts and it still came out good. Be aware that this is a very dense cake...it won't rise much in the oven. On the bright side that made it really easy to get out of the cake pans. The mix of the two flavors of frosting was very good and it was all pretty easy to put together. My four year old son just rated it "the best frosting cake ever" lol.
