What type of butter (salted or unsalted) have people used for this cake. It doesn't specify which I generally assume to mean salted. Thanks!

Unless otherwise specified, I think the default for baking is unsalted.

I've made this EXCELLENT cake a bunch of times (the frosting alone is a gift). Like Trena, I always use unsalted butter when baking -- then I can control how salty my pastries are.

I always use unsalted butter when baking. The salt content varies depending on which brand of butter you are using. This is the reason most bakers use unsalted. Best of luck to you, it sounds like a delicious recipe!
