      Very moist and tasty! The spices in this cake really stand out and the cake just melts in your mouth. The coffee icing is the bomb. I agree with Elmotoo - it ROCKS!

      So I made this today for company that is coming over tonight, and I had to sneak a piece...I can't say enough how good this is!! Wow, it knocked me out! Now, I did not have buttermilk, but I improvised and used some sour cream mixed with milk and I imagine it had the same effect, a beautiful moist cake with a delectable icing! Thanks for posting!!

      Oh this just ROCKED my world!! 10+ stars!! I must have done something right because this cake is absolutely FANTABULOUS!! It is so perfect & moist & well balanced seasoning-wise. It could not be better. I think it's because of the buttermilk. Now the icing, I was skeptical (I'm not a coffee drinker but I do like coffee ice cream - go figure) but it is excellent! Perfect! I have to say that I didn't follow the icing recipe perfectly...I eyeballed the confectioner's sugar and the vanilla 'spilled,' lol. I added a litte more cardamom because I thought it was a smidge too coffee-ey. Turns out dh really does NOT like cardamom so I get more cake. YIPPEE!! Thanks, Sistah!!
