      Oh mama! This is a great cake. The icing was just fantastic. Please do try it WITH the icing. It makes a world of a difference. I did end up adding 4 tablespoon of kahlua in the icing instead of three. One thing though...I felt that I couldn't really taste the kahlua in the cake (sponge) part. Maybe I might add more kahlua the next time. AA here I come :). Thanks Sue!

      So I'm not into baking, but I wanted to make a cake from scratch and this recipe caught my eye. The recipe is a little involved for a beginner, but the end result was worth it. I added extra Kahlua to the frosting - my husband said it needed something. I also added extra to the mix as some suggested in their reviews. I was short on time and didn't beat the egg whites long enough. This may be why it was a little dense. Nonetheless, my friends that tried it loved it!
