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.

Awesome!!! Very nice and easy too. I added cruising and sliced almonds. The mix was little thick and I increased quantity of milk by 1/2 cup. Works well. Would repeat this recipe. Thanks Chef.
