      I only made the cake, but oh boy was it good!!!!! Moist, yummy! I used a different cream cheese frosting because I wanted the cake to be the star, and it was indeed. I substituted 1/2 cup of the oil for applesauce, and next time will shoot for half to see if it affects the consistency much. Great cake!

      So I only made the frosting (I made pineapple cupcakes and wanted a similar frosting), and it turned out very nice! I forgot to add the half & half, but it still turned out good. It complemented the cupcakes very nicely, and hopefully they go over well with my co-workers. I like all of the ingredients in the hummingbird cake, so I might try that at a later time! Thank you for a great recipe!
