This is a very flavourful and moist cake (even after 4 days!). I am only giving it 4 stars because of the glaze. IMHO, there was just too much of it. The bottom third of the cake absorbed so much glaze that it changed the texture (made it kind of "soggy")and it made it too sweet. I think if you used only 1/2 a recipe of the glaze, the cake would be outstanding! Made for MY 3 CHEFS Nov '09.
