I was very disappointed in this recipe, especially since I took a chance and made it the night before a relative's birthday. I spent all evening and a lot of money, all for a cake that's too ugly and odd tasting to serve :( The cake itself tastes OK, although not worth the time it requires to prepare. But the filling is too runny, and has an underdone milky/eggy taste, even though I cooked it for a long time. And back to the cake ... each cake section cooked differently! One part had a single side that expanded to be twice as thick as the other side; another cake section had one spot that would finish baking until 15 minutes after the other two sections were done. I assume this is because of folding in the egg whites, maybe they weren't blended well enough? Either way, the cakes were too fragile to shave, so I ended up with a very unattractive, lopsided, runny cake that we probably won't even eat.
