Top Review by gertc96

This was a really good cake. We loved it. I didn't get much frosting from just using 1/3 of the can of Eagle Brand Milk. Next time, I'll probably use 1/2 the can for cake and 1/2 for frosting. The cake is so nice and moist. Thank you so much for sharing. I made this for the New Kids on the Block tag game. June 2010
