    This cake is so, so yummy! I think it’s actually better the next day…the flavors sort of meld together, and it’s just so good. I had to add a little extra milk to the frosting because it was too thick (I may have measured incorrectly to begin with); otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. It got rave reviews by everyone who ate it. This is definitely a repeat!
