It may look absolutely delicious, but the truth is that after about four mouthfuls even a thin sliver of a cake like this will make you feel sick.
It's the icing. He wanted layers you see, and to be sure of having enough I used nearly a pound and a half of icing sugar and 12 oz of butter. The mints on the top don't help.
No one could eat very much of it.
In future I am going to resist demands for heavily iced cakes and stick to simple cakes like this one.
