  1. Hi there, your cake looks so amazing!!! I would love to try it but I'm having a little problem with the conversions and I have never used the metric system in baking. I wouldn't know where to start. I was hoping you would have some suggestions on the conversion or using the metric measurements. Thanks, Megan

    1. Hello Megan! :) I'm so happy that you liked it. I wrote other measurements in the recipe now, I hope I could help. But if not, this site helps:
      Good luck! :)
