  1. 1 and a half cups of sugar seems a lot with the added addition of white chocolate…. Is that much needed to make the recipe nice? Has someone tried it with less? Getting a yummy icing with the cake :)

    • Hi Helen, I have made this cake more than a few times and it is consistently good. It is a dense cake where small servings are plenty and it is also a large cake so the sugar disperses.
