Based on the number of stars (and without reading too many of the reviews), we chose this recipe for my daughter's final for Foods class as a freshman in high school. As others have noted, the cake part is excellent! No changes. I am a pretty experienced baker, but failed to notice the TWENTY minutes of mixing for the filling. should have been a red flag.... The filling as directed was just awful. I added: cornstarch mixed with water, a lot of powdered sugar, and roux (butter and flour), until after about an hour we got to an actual acceptable creamy middle. If you are not an experienced baker, find another filling recipe! Ours turned out great, but it was really trial and error until we "got it." Find your "own" or another recipe for the filling PLEASE and spare yourself our problems!
