My hand-written notes in my Cake Mix Doctor book say this cake is ugly but delicious. It looks like it has dirt stirred into it. :) But my kids clamor for me to make it. I have made it as a cake, and also as cupcakes for taking to a party. (just halve the amount of whipped cream if you are making cupcakes).
I've made this cake several times and it always gets rave reviews. I'm actually making it right now to bring to a party! When my friends heard I was making it, they all got that Homer Simpson look... Mmmmm... Cake....
This cake was good. I gave it 4 stars, but my husband gives it 5. The icing is indeed not sweet... but it's a good thing because it mixes well with the sweetness of the cake. I did add a tablespoon of powdered sugar to the heavy cream. We also found that the cake tastes better the following day after it sat in the refrigerator overnight.
This cake turned out really nice. I made it for my son's 10th birthday. He is usually not a big cake fan, but he said he really liked this one. I have to admit that I cheated a little and used a combo of Cool Whip and store-bought vanilla frosting for the icing. I'm sure it would have been much better with the real whipping cream, but I didn't want the extra calories. Thanks for an interesting new recipe!
This turned out really well. It was so easy to make and everyone at the party was very impressed with the results. My father raved about this cake ,and he dosen't usually do that ! :)
This cake is a nice change from the usual cake. I added quite a bit of sugar in my frosting, and the frosting still wasnt as sweet as I would have liked it, but it was still a delicious cake. I would strongly suggest that if someone wants to make this cake, they add sugar to the whip cream before beating it. The flavor of my cake was a delicate cookie taste, not too strong, same as the frosting. Thanks for the recipe:)
This cake was FANTASTC!! Well written recipe that was easy to make. I must say, my cake didn't look as beautiful as the one pictured, but no one seemed to mind! What a simple way to make an impressive cake, and it's from a MIX!! Thanks for sharing!
