This cake does not last long in our house. In truth I think it's the icing that makes the cake, but the moist cake is fabulous too. It freezes great as well.

I like this cake much more than my husband. He said it was a cake he would eat it put in front of him but nothing he would request. To say the least, that shocked me coming from him!!! I would like to offer a piece of advice on the frosting. zbe VERY careful with your heat while cooking the milk mixture, or it may scorch and that would be disasterous for the frosting.

The cake was very tasty and moist. However, I would have preferred a different frosting. Maybe just buttercream frosting. My 11 year-old daughter made this all by herself for Chemistry Class. This was a very easy recipe for her to make.

Good cake. I did not make the icing so I can not rate it.
