      I have made this recipe again. I originally reviewed this on Jul 26, 2003 and gave this 3 stars because at that time there were formating errors that caused some confusing and affected the outcome the first time I made this. Since then, the recipe has been corrected and I was able to make this the 2nd time with no problems whatsoever. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! This cake was very moist and heavenly.... from the tiny slice I was able to have of it..... because it was totally consumed by the family I stay with - INCLUDING THE CRUMBS! There was NOTHING left when I went back for a 2nd piece! They loved it (which is an important factor when I give a 5 star review). Oh, well! I guess I'm just going to have to make this a 3rd time when no one is home so I can enjoy this ALL TO MYSELF! Thanks for making the corrections Whisper. And Thank you for sharing a fantastic recipe! This is something that I will be maing again, and again.

      Whisper, this was a delicious and pretty cake -- and in reality, pretty easy to make. I love the contrast of the not-too-sweet spice cake with the delightfully rich caramel frosting. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!!!

      I didn't have a bit of trouble with this recipe...It came out delicious!! And, because I had your permission, I put creamcheese frosting on top...All I can say is "WOW!!! I did omit the chopped nuts...other than that, I followed your easy directions, and came out with a 5* winner!! Thanks so much for sharing, Whisper...This is a great cake! Laudee
