    This was a great recipe! I agree that the cakes did not rise as shown in the video. I would double the recipe next time. It tasted delicious and the frosting was awesome!

    I omitted the cinnamon and it was delicious. The only criticism I have is that these cakes did not rise as expected. I made 2 batches in order to have a normal sized cake. Should baking soda be exchanged for baking powder?

    P.S. I'm not sure why it filtered my word- what I said was it left a h o l e in the top of the cake where it oozed. Weird? . . .

    The cake was rather dry, but not the worst I've had. Also, during baking, one of the cakes oozed what looked like a mix of egg & sugar? It was really shiny. I've never had this happen before & didn't know what the cause was. It left a hole in the cake in that spot. If you use this recipe, use a simple syrup to moisten the cake before you frost it. This frosting recipe is small- I had to double it. I used raspberry jam filling in the center & frosted w/ the frosting. Wish I could share a pic!

    Followed the recipe exactly. The cinnamon in the cake was overpowering the rest of the ingredients. Also, it was a rather dry and dense cake. The icing however was divine!
