I am torn on this review. 5 stars for the cake DEFINITELY! Next time I would probably omit the Coke or half it. The sweetened condensed milk poured over it was genius and reminded me of a Tres Leches cake. The icing I'd have to rate 3 stars. Too rich and thick. Tasty though but next time Ill just buy a thing of cream cheese frosting and to be honest, this cake is SO good it doesnt really even need any frosting!:) Thanks!!!
