This cake is moist and very tender. Everyone who tasted it loved it. It is purple but considering the jam that was not unexpected. I used it for my son's second birthday and it suited the palates of the children and the adults. Read More

I didn't think it was anything special but my hubby and child and guests liked it a lot so I conclude it's a good idea to keep it in my box. Read More

Something just didn't work in the recipe I suspect it was the allspice. Usually my cakes disappear at parties and this one had plenty left over. Doubt that I will try it again. Read More

Pretty Good but it lacked something. Everyone at work liked it but I wasn't 100% happy with it. It needed a glaze to make it a bit more perfected Read More
