We have one with a broken heart in our family. This was part of therapy. While life is imperfect, at least there was no broken cake. Made for PRMR and more than delicious.

This is a good cake, but to me it lacked a little depth of flavor. I think I will add vanilla next time and maybe some white chocolate chips. I did like the icing, but I might also try a glaze. Thank you for a good recipe!
