I've made this cake 3 times now, and it has always been delicious. It is definitely a dense cake, but I have not found it to be greasy or grainy as other reviewers have described it. I have had some issues getting the frosting whipped to the right consistency. It came out light and fluffy one time out of three. Another time it was fluffy, but it seemed grainy, like the sugar didn't mix in very well. The third time it looked like it was the right consistency in the bowl, but after putting it on the cake the frosting became almost runny (yes, the cake was cooled). I'm sure that's more due to my baking skills than the recipe, but this is just a word of warning to others to be careful making the frosting. You MUST let the white chocolate mixture cool all the way to room temperature before mixing it into the other ingredients and you also must make sure you whip it enough to get the right consistency. But even if it does become a little thinner that it should be, the cake and frosting still taste great.
