      Everyone liked this cake. At first I thought there would not be enough frosting to cover the cake but I kept smoothing it out with a spatula and was able to cover the cake. I thought I would recommend making double the recipe but if I had, that would have been too sweet. So follow the recipe as written and work the frosting into a thin layer across the entire cake. It is a very nice every day kind of cake.
