Top Review by alAmira

we just tried this recipe among some others to decide what to use for a wedding cake, and this one won hands down. Everyone who tried it loved it, and my future mother in law about melted it was so good in her opinion. We sampled it with a classic buttercream icing. Even rich as they both were, I couldnt resist having two pieces worth.
