Kara, I haven't eaten breakfast yet and you're sharing this? *dramatically poses with back of hand pressed to forehead*

Just kiddin'. ;) Well, I actually haven't eaten yet, but that's my own fault as the morning isn't exactly young--I just keep forgetting. :P In any case, this cake looks absolutely scrumptious. Thanks for sharing!
