      I need to say that I made two major changes in the cake.

      1. I used milk and a dash apple cidar vinegar to make the buttermilk.
      2. I did not make a layer cake. Instead, I made 2 (read: NOT 3) round cakes. I have frozen one and ate the other after it spent a day in the fridge.

      Other than that, I followed the recipes exactly. If I wanted to make a layer cake, I would certainly make 3 thin layers and put them together as the recipe suggests, as this is quite a bit dense for two layers. The cake is yummy, if not a bit bland. I wonder if the blandness comes from being cold in the fridge. I can't help but think that we are loosing some of the subtleness of the flavor by the fact that it is cold. BUT, the icing was SOOO watery for me (added 3/4 cup extra of powdered sugar to try and remedy this, to no avail) I really needed it to be firmer to decorate it and even that was hard. It was like a gooey glaze.

      I also think that the apple cidar vinegar flavor came through as the flavors here are so delicate. No one else noticed or mentioned it, but I could feel it and I think it took away from the cake. Also, next time, I would use more white chocolate or even put white chocolate chips directly into the cake to help boost that flavor because you do not feel the white chocolate AT ALL in this cake.

      All that being said, everyone STILL had seconds and we enjoyed the cake. Husband gave this a 3-3.5 stars. I'm giving it a 4 because I really think it would have been better at room temp.

      I might make this again. The toasted pecans added a lot and I wouldn't make it without it...unless I subbed chocolate chips (black and white, most likely) which might work, too. But, most likely, I will keep experimenting with other recipes.

      This is a fabulous and special cake. It has "wow" factor all over it. It has a somewhat dense texture, possibly from the chocolate. I took it to work and it received nothing but compliments. Did I mention that it's beautiful, too! Thanks, Nyteglori!

      My husband loves this cake without the pecans (although the recipe I have uses more sugar in the frosting--may try it this way next time as it is too sweet for me). I'm not a big fan of white chocolate, but the texture of this cake is wonderful. Raspberries are also a wonderful compliment to this cake, either added to the frosting or as a garnish.
