This cake is really, really wonderful! I ground my own nutmeg (There is SO much more complexity to the flavor than what you get in the pre-ground bottled variety. I purchased whole nutmeg seeds at Penzeys.), and this cake showcased the flavors exquisitely. The cake was very tender and moist. As far as the frosting, I can't say I'm a fan, though. Made per instructions, I did not have enough frosting for the sides of the cake, and the flavor didn't really compliment the cake. Next time (and I WILL make the cake again), I will take the other reviewers' advice and choose perhaps a butter cream.
