  • The cake was easy and non fussy to put together, and it came out moist and with a wonderful crumb. I put only a teaspoon of ground cardamom as opposed to the 1 1/2 tsps called for in the recipe because cardamom can be a bit overwhelming and floral to me. I'm glad I did not use as much cardamom as specified as just the 1 teaspoon caused the cake to get a few thumbs down, one of the testers said it tasted like a florist shop smells. The coffee flavor was subtle in the cake but absolutely delicious in the icing, overall not my cup of tea but I am looking forward to cooking through the rest of Sweet.
