This cake was very good. Too sweet for me but it was very pretty and turned out. However I don't care for the pouring the sugar mixture over the bottom that is just weird to me. It made the bottom of the cake soggy. Because the recipe called for an 8 inch bunt pan it didn't work very well. I had to poke holes in the bottom of the cake and pour it in. If it was a larger pan it wouldn't of been much of a problem I don't think. Anyhow when I make this again I will leave out the extra on the bottom. Thanks for the recipe and I will make again with subtle changes.
