This cake is AMAZING. Alterations: I added fresh chopped root ginger, and used rum instead of the liqueurs suggested. I didn't bother with the icing although I'm sure it is even more wonderful with it. Absolutely delicious, and so easy to make. Thank you!

Add chopped root ginger if you prefer a bit more flavour. Also, I substitute the liqueur with rum and it's delicious.
