Top Review by Lasko

Made it for my Daughters 1st birthday cake. For sweetener I used sugar and only about 1/2 a cup. I baked a bunch of little cakes and they turned out great! I used cream cheese frosting sweetened and colored with fruit juice. My daughter LOVED it. I liked the cake just by itself. Thanks for the great recipe!
