I couldn't believe my family all actually agreed on something. My husband, daughter, and son all liked this cake! It was amazing and one of the few times at least one of them couldn't find something they didn't like. Before they tasted it though they all voiced their disappointment that I didn't make any of their usual cake choices and made something different. (How dare I!) Afterwards though I was given permission to make it again whenever I felt like as long as it was SOON!
