    I made this a couple years ago and am still kicking myself that I didn’t take a picture. It came out just like the picture (I’ve never made anything that came out so professional. Moreover the taste was so good and very rich. Yes there are like a dozen and a half eggs and 13 sticks of butter, but it feeds a LOT of people and after all, it was the holidays. 😁 Thanks Martha!

    I, too, would like clarification if the ingredient is baking SODA or baking POWDER.

    On TV Martha said the cake requires baking powder. In the recipe it says baking soda. Which is right? Also, my frosting is very runny. I could pore it. I have put it in the refrigerator, hoping the butter will harden a bit to make the icing thicker. What might I have done wrong and how should I correct it?
