"We made this cake for my husband's birthday dinner today. I was so worried about making the cake soggy that I went VERY light on the syrup; next time I will more than quadruple the amount I actually brushed on this first time out. The only problem that I had was thickening the frosting. I live at 7,000 feet above sea level and I usually have to make all kinds of interesting adjustments to baked goods. I made no changes to the cake itself, but the frosting was very runny. . .not "gloppy." So, I added a little bit of cake flour to thicken it up (probably 1/8 cup)and achieved a beautiful "gloppy" consistency and had LOTS of my children appearing to help frost the cake and "pre-wash" the dishes. We felt like a real Food Network family this evening. We have eaten and enjoyed (which is the real point, isn't it?) every one of Alex's recipes that we have tried. Her style translates very well to our family kitchen. Thank you, Alex!
