    Miss Erin's Note:

    This is a pretty fancy cake if you ask me. Make it for something special, when you want to impress. It is really very good. Out of the ordinary, fabulous in the summertime. The mango curd needs to be made ahead of time, the night before.

      I tried this recipe as the first cake I made from scratch. I was expecting this cake to be so fantastic and beautiful, but it didn't turn out that way. I'm not sure i messed up the banana cake part, but the cake turned out very dry and hard. Also, when I made the layers of frosting then curd, the curd oozed out onto the plate making it so there was barely left on the inside of the cake layer. It is a possibility I could have done something wrong there as well, but I followed the directions and recipe very carefully. The frosting was absolutely amazing, however. I will definitely make this cake again leaving the curd and frosting the same, but using a banana bread recipe rather than the banana cake given here.
