Martha Stewart Wedding Cakes Devil's Food Cake with Italian Merengue Frosting

" Sponge and poached egg with a hint of sugar"

These are the exact words that came out of Randy's mouth after trying his second bite of this cake. The exact same look was on my mom and dad's faces. I have to say I agree with them. The frosting is a classic merengue with no butter, so it's quite the bland frosting. very fluffy, pretty and would be easy for piping. It's devil's food cake, but hardly sweet at all and quite dry. Quite the dissapointment in Martha Stewart. I will never ever be making this cake again! And just in case you're wondering, I followed the directions exactly, so it's not my fault!

I was lazy and didn't flatten out the layers this time, so it looks a little retarded. Oh well :) So here is to finding a better devil's food cake recipe in the future. this one definately thumbs down.

Or maybe my family are just food snobs?

Here is the book I got the recipe from just in case you're wondering. Good ideas for decorating cakes, just not for recipes(so far)
