First off, this cake was great! I changed things up a bit, it may be something you might want to consider. The first thing I did differently was instead of round pans I used a 9X13 slab. It was easier to transport and cut, I was able to get 16 very generous pieces, you could get more if you cut smaller, next time I will. Since this was following Christmas dinner I wanted to lighten things up a little (I dont mean calories here) So I used the cream cheese frosting in the middle, and a thin layer on top (I cut the whole slab in 1/2), and then frosted the whole outside with sweetened whip cream. I think if I frosted the whole thing with the cream cheese it would have been to much for our already stuffed bellies. You will have a bit of leftover creamcheese icing, ice some cookies or something. It was a really good cake, the only reason why I didnt give it 5 stars was because it was a little denser than I would have liked but I did cut the cake in 1/2 while it was still warm so that may have caused a little deflation so I will never know if it was supposed to be like that or if it was my own fault. Probably the latter. It was pretty tasty though.
