I've made this cake for two weddings, two graduations, a retirement party and a 70th birthday party. One of the brides saw the cake, stole away with it and saved it as her "topper" for the first anniversary. This cake has become famous among my friends and now, when a special event approaches, people begin to ask if I'm going to bring the "wedding cake". It's great to be famous for a fantastic cake this this. :] I've doubled this recipe to make a half-sheet cake, but I generally make it as two rounds. You have to bake the half sheet a lot longer and I usually bake it at 325. I've made this with a traditional buttercream frosting, but I prefer the cream cheese frosting. I've made the frosting with and without nuts (and used the nuts as decoration).
