      I made this cake to give to my sister in law that was ailing. I used a carmel icing #24765 which complimented this cake very well. When we dropped it off, she gave us each a slice of cake. I have recently starting making my cakes from scratch and find them very simple to do. I love the flavor of this cake and will continue to make it in the future.

      I don't know what I did wrong, but this cake turned out pretty dense and crumbly. It tasted like a big sugar cookie. I ate it anyway, though.
