Yummy! I did add a little extra of the topping, just added an equal extra amount of the ingredients in the topping because I really like it. I followed the recipe though. After the cake baked I used a cup powdered sugar, 1 1/2 Tablespoon milk (may need a bit more if it's too thick) and a teaspoon vanilla and made a glaze that I drizzled on top (Lightly) (It's in the picture) when it cooled. It was very good! Thanks for the recipe. Mary C. IL
