Overall, I thought the cake was a bit dry. Everyone seemed to like it though, and it was a great pairing for peppermint ice cream.
The icing is out of this world though, and would be delicious poured over ice cream or used for hot chocolate or coffee. I'm not giving up on this recipe, though, and I may give it another try around Valentine's Day.
If you give this a try, please let me know how it goes!
