Everyone really liked this cake! I took it to our family's Easter dinner and there was only one piece left. It was a big hit! I don't have a deep cake pan, so I just cut it in half. The filling is nice and I made the icing yellow and decorated it with colorful chocolate eggs. It looked very spring like. Thanks for sharing.
This cake was excellent! I only had a regular cake pan, but I cut the cake very thinly and managed to get 3 layers out of it. The filling was a great consistency with softened butter (not too soft!), and the icing was runny but tasty. I used orange extract in the filling, and yellow paste food colouring throughout. I also used spray food colour on the top to attempt something, but wouldn't do it again. =) The final product was delicious and adorable, and went over really well at our Easter celebration.
Um Safia,After my request on the thread re pan size.I made it with the two 8 inch pans and was able to cut one of the cakes to yield three pieces. I made the filling a little too runny,this would have needed an extra cup of sugar to work.So it was a bit sloppy. With the icing on it finished up fairly nice. Would I make again,yes ,having learned from the fist attempt.Thanks Don Steele
