    I rated this as Fair, only because my frosting did not come out as thick as the video. I followed the recipe exactly. I even put in the fridge for an hour. Any suggestions?

    Very good cake.I cut back on the powdered sugar in the frosting, and it was still sweet enough. The orange zest in the frosting was a nice touch.I used some halloween sprinkles on the bottom rim of the cake to decorate, and a pumpkin on top.It made a great Halloween birthday cake.
