    It was beautiful not too sweet which is how I like it I used stevia castor baking sugar instead of the other sugar I like it will definitely make more of this. Really liked the icing too

  2. My kids made this cake for my birthday and it was very good. I will say it was a bit sweet but it’s definitely satisfied my sweet tooth.
