    Worst cake recipe EVER. I make a lot of cakes but this one was a gooey mess and a total waste of time and ingredients.  -  06 Nov 2017


    A RECIPE FOR DIABETES. This cake was a disaster. So extremely over sweet and came out of the oven a gooey, runny mess. I'm an experienced cake maker and I have never come accross another cake recipe which states such a large amount of sugar. A waste of time and a waste of ingredients - avoid!!!  -  29 Nov 2013
