    WOW! I made it twice in one week. The first one I used heavy cream and added rum extract. It was gone in 3 days. The second I used buttermilk and added walnut, rum, and vanilla. It is beautiful and scrumptous. Advice to new cooks, grease your cake pans with shortening and dust with flour. let the cake cool 10 minutes. Invert on a plate, it will slide out perfectly. Do not use spray!
