Wonderful! I have made it with chocolate cake and chocolate pudding as well, and it is even better!

Instead of theicing you have with the recipe I always just make a glaze with a1/4 cup confectioners sugar and just enought Bailey's to make a glaze and drizzle it on the cake.

A long-time favorite. Never fails. Wonderful as a sheet cake also. Better the second day, but you must hide a piece to have any left for the second day.

Would make again,it's moist but I find the nuts take away the taste of the Baileys. I would cut down on that and add more Baileys. Same for the sugar,didn't like the sugary taste (kinda makes it feel like those cheap frosting from the market place.) Seriously need to cut down on the sugar. 2 cups might be enough. Over all, it was tasty~

I made the Bailey's Irish Cream Cake for Christmas. It was a hit. The cake was moist with a great taste. Family members now want this cake for their Birthdays.

I love this recipe. I* cut down on the Bailey's in the frosting the second time I made it from 2 tbsp to 1 tbsp. I thought the taste was a little too strong the first time. Other than that, it's a great recipe. The whole family loves it.

A great cake! My family loves this cake... We also made it for friends and family, they all loved it too!!! We have been making this cake for 2 years now. You can also make it with amaretto instead of baileys. It is just as pleasant.

Great cake! I made this for my 21st birthday. I didn't have have instant pudding on hand so I used cook & serve but it came out just fine. I served the cake on a blue plate and dressed it up to look like a volcanic island by filling the center with raspberries. Very cute and the raspberries add a wonderful touch.

I just made this today for a friends birthday. I followed the instructions exactly except I made them as 24 cupcakes. What a wonderful success!!! Thanks!
