Reviewed vanilla birthday cake with chocolate frosting

Slight diversions from recipe: no bacon, used smoked gruyere (smokey bacon flavor was perfect), used medium cheddar and added extra to make up for no blue cheese. Used half the salt (recipe seemed salty once before). Utterly creamy. I wonder if those who found it not creamy enough might have left the heat on...
