I had such high hopes for this one. The frosting actually does taste great- I just could NOT get it to a "frosting" consistencey. It never got "hard" and stayed kinda runny. And I didn't care for the cake itself. It was NOT sweet and had the consistency of a fruitcake. I'm sorry but we really did not like this one. I'm giving it 4 stars b/c I think I could work on it and improve it.
