so this recipe is a bit of a bummer. after reading the reviews i added the almond extract, salt and lemon as suggested. When i was baking the cake I thought...wow thats a lot of sugar and I was right. This cake is very very sweet. I had to use shortning frosting because of the Texas heat and the combination of this cake and sweet frosting was a but much. I am afraid that if you cut back on the sugar you wont be able to cream seven eggs properly. I have to say it almost tasted like a sugar cookie cake, dense, sweet and floury (i know not a word but an accurate description) I used a tart blueberry filling which helped and I got compliments, but I know a good cake and this just isnt it.
