    If I could rate this cake a 10 I would. This is the first 3-layer cake I've ever made and it turned out perfect. It's going to be tough but I'll try to share with my family and friends. Thanks for a delicious recipe. :)

    Love the Hummingbird cake....so delicious. I remember the Southern Living show where the chefs did the cook-off from many many years ago. This cake has been a favorite ever since. Thanks for the reminder. Have to make one soon. Yum.
