      I made this cake for family that came in, I substituted Splenda for the sugar, it tasted delicious. Living with a diabetic he can have small portions of it but without the sugar content... Great cake, thanks for sharing!!

      I have made this cake three times, and each time it has been delicious! I've done a few variations, one of my biggest hits being a version with instant espresso in the cake batter, and Nutella as a filling. All three times the cake was consumed within minutes of being presented. The base recipe is perfect the way it is, and very versatile. One suggestion to anyone living in a warmer environment is to chill the frosting before and after you ice the cake. Thank you so much for posting this!!
