I am ashamed to say I didn't follow the recipe as written, but my results were delicious! I followed the modifications suggested by other reviewers (Decreased flour, increased sugar, and half the cocoa) and used cake flour. I used gel food coloring rather than the liquid, but be warned, 1oz of the gel is much stronger than the liquid stuff. I probably could have used half that much. I also took them out a bit too early, fearing dryness, and they fell! On the plus side, I made the frosting as it's listed, and it was scrumptious. Popped it in the fridge for a bit so I could pipe it, but it stays soft, so don't make lofty decorating plans with it. I didn't give them away as planned because I was afraid they'd come out weird, but everyone in the house loved them! Even the last few, on the 3rd day, were as good as they were on day 1. A fantastic and forgiving recipe.
