"I made this cake and it was amazing. I used a double batch to make a three tier cake. I iced it with buttercream frosting and some lemon juice and topped it off with shredded coconut and some lemon zest. It looked amazing and tasted even better. Also it was one of the easiest cakes I've ever made. Will definitely make it again!" - frankiebuddy

"I followed this recipe exactly, and I've got to say it was the best I've tried so far, and I have tried many claiming to be be the best. I have to agree with danboy357, if you aren't following it exactly then you are kinda defeating the purpose of the recipe as written. I wouldn't change a thing, this is 'the one' when it comes to making your own sauce!" - lil nutbrown hare

"I made this for New Year's Eve. Followed the recipe exactly & it came out just like the photo-but I was a bit disappointed with it. Some guests enjoyed it, some I think didn't as they didn't go back for seconds. Husband commented yuck. I wasn't a big fan either, would rate it as just okay, not worth the effort. I'll be going back to the normal cob loaf dips, much prefer those. Won't make this again." - sherri3802
