    How could this cake be bad with all that butter in it! I recommend that you ask foodies to read the entire recipe before beginning, since the ingredients for the frosting are located in the "directions" portion of the recipe. Looks delicious, Irish!

    This sounds really good and seems VERY easy. Is it a more moist cake when done?

    Wow Irish, this sounds great. Mary Kay frosting is what some call this---and it's light & tastes like vanilla ice cream! The buttermilk cake here is wonderful. Anyone making this will get great results!--Kn0x--
