I made this for New Year's. The cake was good, and we really loved the frosting, but the cream cheese filling tasted eggy, dense, and just not sweet enough(we ended up scooping it out). I did use 1/3 less fat cream cheese, so maybe that changed the taste? It baked well, and I didn't have any trouble removing from the bowl, and looked great decorated. Would try again, with a modified filling.
