  1. Hmm -sounds interesting. Why earthquake cake I wonder?

  2. It ends up having a crackle looking top after it is cooked so it looks like the aftermass of an earthquake. If that makes sense.

  3. 1 pound of powdered sugar is 4 cups. right?

  4. you call for a 9 by 13 pan, but your cake looks round to me. What's up with that?
