      Amazing cake/great icing. I find that I have to use at least half a cup of milk for the batter and it's even better if you add a pinch of instant coffee to the cake batter as well as the icing (1/4 tsp does the trick for me)

      The flavor of this cake was fabulous. I had a problem with the actual baking of the cake. I checked on it after the recomemded time, but it was nowhere near done. So I let it cook longer, but it fell miserably. After speaking with a baker friend of mine he said that even the slightest loss of temperature with this recipe would make it fall. He said you can't open the oven door at all until it is done, so since I don't have a window in my oven...I won't be able to make this cake again (until I get a new oven LOL). The icing was DELICIOUS. I work at a coffee shop so instead of the instant coffee powder is used 2TBSP of espresso (brewed from our espresso bar) and lessend the amount of milk. I took the icing in to my baker friend who loved it! I will be doing that again for sure.
