Super easy, super delicious! I must admit, I was a little concerned by so many who'd said this didn't rise properly, but I didn't have that problem at all. I made this cake yesteray for my husband for Valentine's Day. Followed the recipe exactly, except I used my heart-shaped layer cake pans (that are supposed to be the same volume as 8" round). I did do one thing which could have aided better rising - I used my Kitchen Aid mixer, and whipped it for several seconds both after adding the eggs, and then again after all ingredients were added. It rose perfectly, made a deliciously moist white cake. (I wonder if those for whom it didn't rise were using either expired baking powder or a margarine product instead of butter?) I wanted a very old-fashioned result, so I used a simple cooked brown sugar icing, and sprinkled some candy hearts around the perimiter of the plate to add "Valentiney-ness" - the result was exactly what I wanted, and my husband (and I) loved it! Thanks to Nany for passing down her fabulous recipe to MeaganColleen :)
