    1. I made it! Turned out beautifully! Prettiest cake I’ve ever made in my life and I’m 60! Cannot wait to taste it. (I know the batter and frosting was delicious – shhh!) 😉

      • Hahaha…..Cindy. No worries…I’m right there with you! I’m so glad the cake turned out for you and you’re happy with it. 🙂

    2. Is this correct the recipe states the butter is melted. I would think the butter should be softened, not melted.
