We ate the cake today, and everyone was amazed at its beauty (even before they knew it was homemade), which I thought was very pleasant of them. Only two people who saw it (uncut) ASKED WHAT KIND OF CAKE IT WAS. Everyone who I heard say anything really loved it. One person said it was “heavy,” to which I replied, “Damn right. I don’t make no ‘lite’ baked goods,” but she mmmmmmmmmmmd through the whole slice. It’s quite huge as two layers, and we were about 15 people. Even a very thin (1” at the outside of the wedge) is a really BIG slice. Not everyone had some, so there’s about 1/2 left, which is good, several people who would not be at this gathering asked me to save them some.
A cake designed as a single layer makes a very large two layer, which can really work out well.
