      We LOVED this cake. My husband said this is the best gluten free cake he's ever had. He made it for my birthday and it was gone by the second day. I'm pretty sure it was a hit! We didn't use the frosting recipe because I can't have too much dairy. We were wondering what this would be like with a raspberry sauce. Might try that next time. I will let you know if we do.

      Love this recipe, no one knew it was gluten free. Note that I would suggest to put the cakes and frosting into the fridge before assembly; this make it more stable and you can put more between the layers.
