Not sure what the fuss was about. I did not like the icing but then I don't like the store bought frostings so what was I thinking. I guess I was hoping the cream cheese would work miracles. ...

I'm not much of a baker, and this cake was really easy and delicious. Very moist. I made no modifications to the recipe and it came out perfect. I'll definitely be serving this one again.
