    The cake was delicious but kind of heavy. I don't know if I made a mistake in making the cake mix first or not. Also, the cake took 15 min. longer to cook.

    This fell little but when it was inverted you couldn't tell. Most important it was SO GOOD. Every single crumb was consumed and it got rave reviews! its a lot like pound cake in consistency.
