    Steve_G's Note:

    A bit unusual mixing technique assures a perfect cake every time. Frost with 1 1/2 batches of my semi classic butter-cream frosting, any flavor will do, but we like the milk chocolate best.

      This cake was pretty easy to make for a from scratch cake. It tasted very good, though it could have been just slightly more moist. The flavor was delightfull...I could eat like cake w/ NO icing! (but I used a vanilla icing anyways ;)

      I did not change one thing (as I normally do) I was SO disappointed. My DH and my DS like it just fine. My 4 y/o DD helped me make them (mix and fill the cake pan). Over all I wont make it again unless it's requested and then I probably will dump sweetened fruit & fresh whip cream on top.
