The star rating is for the cake which was delicious and worth the effort. I baked it in a 9x13 pan for 35 minutes. However, I had a problem with the frosting being too dry. I added an extra 2 ounces of cream cheese and some cream to try to salvage it. The end result was a frosting that was too sweet for our tastes. I would make the cake again, thanks chef.
