This is a great tasting cake. In terms of taste only, I would rate this recipe with 5 stars. However, because of the trouble this cake is to make, I'm only rating it with 4 stars. I am not new to cake baking and enjoy cooking and baking very much. This recipe is a bit more "fussy" than my usual cake recipes (for example, having to separate the eggs), and the icing was not as easy as it seemed. I was careful not to thicken my icing TOO much, for fear it would not spread well. Perhaps I didn't thicken it enough, since it slid down the sides of my cake. The finished product looked quite messy. I think if I bake this cake again, I may make it as a sheet cake instead. The photo another reviewer posted with chocolate icing on the sides also seems like a good alternative.
