My kids love this cake and the frosting too ! I have tried it twice and did not have any of the failures that some of the reviewers did. I am not an experienced baker so I try to follow the instructions exactly. 30 minutes in my oven using Wilton pans, which are not expensive, is perfect. The cake is very moist so you DO need to let it cool at least 10 or 20 minutes before taking them out of the pans. I went around the edges with a sharp knife before trying to remove them to cool more. I elevate my cooling rack to let it cool better also.
Have a cup of hot water to dip your frosting knife in. The frosting is fairly thick. Do not panick after adding and mixing the boiling water. It looks very soupy but ends up great. It is not a light fluffy cake. It is dense and moist. Very flavorful. I also have not had problems with it spilling over the cake pans. I don't know what is causing that problem for people. You will have leftover frosting if you aren't cutting them to make a 4 layer cake.
