I make cakes for a living, and I wasn't to thrilled with the end result. 1st. The recipe all in it's different components were great. However, this cake is soo light, it easily crumbled as I added the frosting. The cakes stacked 5 high, didn't stay put either, as it jiggled while frosting the cakes. It would have been better dividing 2 cakes in half and stacking then stacking all 5 whole cakes. The cakes were soo tender, that when I cut one slice out and placed on a serving plate, I was immediately dealt with the dilemma of catching the rest of the cake, for it split into 2 more pieces and fell off the cake plate I had it on. And I do mean, catching the cake, it exploded everywhere. My husband had to help me get the cake on other plates because I had my hand on one side of the cake holding it up. The frosting was quite delish but I ended up adding over 3 TBSP of milk to thin it. Don't think I'd make this again. I'll make the frosting again for sure. Just not this particular cake recipe. Sorry.
