Well, I can't say that I got to taste it since the entire cake was eaten at church and none made it home. Judging by what my friends told me, it's fantastic and I have requests for the recipe. Patience, grasshopper, patience. This WILL work. Yes, preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Trust me, IT WORKS! You may have to bake longer than hour. In my oven, a total of 1 hour and 25 minutes. Start checking with a toothpick at the hour mark, if you need more time, check in 5-10 minute increments. It looks like the cake will never cook but then voila, it's done. I don't know if anyone else did it, but I beat the frosting on high speed for a few extra minutes to make it extra fluffy. Plus, since I don;t like my sweets too sweet, I cut back on the sugar in the cake by 1/4 cup and in the frosting by 1/2 cup.
