I did this recipe twice, baking one cake right after the other. As another reviewer noted, you have to beat the icing well (I used a hand mixer for nearly 15 minutes before adding the flour mixture and for 3-5 minutes after), so that you don't have a gritty icing. The icing isn't too sweet, and worked well with the cake. As for making the flour mixture, keep stirring constantly, and the mix will get nice and thick. Cool it completely before adding it to the sugar mix. The vinegar mix is kind of crazy, because on the first cake I did, I worked quickly, and the cake came out a bit more dense than cake #2 (where I practically threw it in the oven, I worked so fast). One last note: food coloring. I used a gel food color (about a teaspoon), but if I had to do it again, I'd try the liquid. Mainly, because my batter seemed a bit thicker than on the video shown for this recipe. Either way, the cake was a hit. Good luck!
