    this recipe is very confusing. how are you supposed to know what the remaining ingredients are for each part of the recipe? it doesn't tell you what part of the ingredient list belongs to which part of the cake, or cream? I've just spent 20 minutes trying o figure it out. it's very frustrating because I already took out my ingredients and have no clue how to figure this out. I wish it had been written clearly and each part was defined. now I have to figure out something else to do since I already have the ingredients out
