I made this and served it at baby shower. It was so yummmmmmmmy. Rich and moist. The icing is very sweet. The almond flavoring is a subtle nice touch. All the ladies commented that it tasted delicious. Many wanted the recipe. Thanks for a great recipe.

This is an incredible cake! I made a few changes after making this very popular cake 3 times in 2 weeks, and the changes made it even better. I added an extra half cup of flour, reduced the sugar by a half cup, and added a teaspoon of baking powder. These changes make the cake lighter without loosing any taste.

This cake buckled the knees of all the men in my house. It's about half gone between the three of them already. Awesome - deserves more than 5 stars.
