Made this for my husband's birthday. I found this to be overly sweet and so did my family and guests. I questioned the use of an entire pound of confectioners sugar, but went ahead and followed the recipe as indicated. In hindsight, I should have cut the sugar. The cake itself wasn't particularly special either.
