I followed all of the hints from the other reviews with the butter Crisco and the coffee, etc. Maybe it would have come out better by following the recipe exactly but I doubt that much better. I made this for my sister in law's baby shower and was horrified when the cake fell apart before I could even assemble it. PLEASE do not make this cake for a special occasion, test it out first which is normally what I do. I would try to make this cake again by following the exact recipe, but I just don't want to because the substitutions were not that big to make a difference. This was way to dry, crumbly, not sweet enough. To all of the other users who made this cake a success, I congratulate you on a job well done. I will be sticking to my old recipes in the future! I have to rate this with one star, but I am really giving it ZERO STARS. I'm sorry my experience was just to terrible. I would love any feedback.
