Wow wow wow wow wow! This has to be in the top 5 cakes that I have ever tasted and made. I have made this cake for so many occasions, including birthdays and even weddings! Yes, I made 20 of these cakes at a time for a wedding. And the most amazing part is that this cake remains moist! It is so good! The only difference is I frost it and fill it with raspberry cream cheese frosting. Thanks for this awesome recipe!
t'was a flop.
I was very excited to make this cake for my husband's birthday, but I was very disappointed in the result. The cake itself, while moist does not have a lot of flavor. I did substitute the preserves for strawberry filling, which is a great filling! The frosting was terrible. Instead of being very creamy, it was stiff and made it difficult to spread. It is also extremely sweet, I think 5 cups of powdered sugar would have been plenty. Needless to say I won't be trying this recipe again.
Excellent Cake! Tasted and smelled great! I used #10045 Strawberry Filling and my own buttercream icing, instead of the frosting provided though. The cake was one of the best I've ever had!
