    This was execellent, but for some reason they have the baking time way to long. Baking time should be as on the cake package, (30 - 40 mins.)

    This recipe got good reviews. I had many people asking for the recipe. So easy to make that my 13 year old niece made this all on her own. I found too that the candycanes ran in the icing and didn't look so good the next day. I'd suggest putting the candycanes on the day you serve the cake.
