    Absolutely delicious! Made 2 for my daughter's birthday party and put one on top of the other with whipped cream in between and then iced the top with Betty Crocker's Milk Chocolate Frosting and Smarties. Everyone commented on how moist it was and yummy!

    Tasted lovely but mine was very flat - only about 3 cms thick. Is that how it is supposed to be? Or am I doing something wrong? Was it supposed to be self raising flour??
