Notes about this recipe

    7.13 I use this icing recipe a lot. Great for a large celebration cake. You just need a bit of time to let it cool.

    The cake turns out nice and moist, if you make sure you do not overbake it. I agree the mixture is very runny at first. As for the frosting, I needed to let it cool much longer than the recipe says, I actually put it into the fridge for a while, to make it reach the right consistency. So if it looks too liquid, just wait for it to set a bit.

    Looks as if it's going wrong - sloppy, runny, hopeless - at every stage. Then turns out absolutely stunning at the last second.
