    I made this cake to serve my customers, ( I am a baker) The cake had a very good flavor but it did tend to be a little too sweet. Might use a little less suger next time. There is a clear mistake listed for the icing. Milk, butter, and sugar will never harden enough to make frosting. I added powdered sugar until the consistency became that of frosting.

    I made this yesterday and have been giving slices away so my husband and I wouldn't eat it all by ourselves. Everyone is asking for recipe. I had some trouble with the icing but probably was due to fact I don't make many icings. This is a keeper for us.

    Wonderful pound cake and so deliciously moist. I couldn't get the frosting to set up so just drizzled on after slicing. Very good recipe and a nice change from traditional pound cakes!
