      1. Hi,
        I made the cake using two cake pans but did not have enough batter for a third.. turn out to be a 2 layer cake… tasted great.. made it for my daughter and substitute $ for the decorations to celebrate a new job

          Hi Pat,
          What a clever idea to make $ decorations.

  4. Made this on Thursday for a Saturday wedding. Torted and frozen for 1 night, filled and frosted with vanilla bean buttercream and covered in fondant on Friday and was left out at room temp till Saturday evening. It was the second tier of a 2 tier cake. It got rave reviews. It is not a particularly sweet cake so it can handle a sweeter frosting. Great recipe, and thank you for your quick reply
