  1. I made this cake! I was a hit skeptical with all of the liquid from the butter and water, but, it came out great! I also modified it a bit by making it a poke cake with caramel ice cream topping. Finally, I reduced the icing to 3 cups instead of 4 1/2 and only a half a stick of butter. I just could not let myself use that much sugar and butter! This didn’t produce the volume of icing, but it was enough. I give this a thumbs up!
