I have made them before and they turned out amazing. All of my kids loved them and said they no longer wanted to buy them from the store. 706 more words
I'm a little behind on blogging due to an ailing laptop. But I thought I would take a moment here on my iPad to reblog this cake, which I made last Friday for a birthday celebration. Many people say this is the best chocolate cake they've ever had. I might agree! The cake itself is rich and moist; the frosting slick and smooth--almost velvety and a bit more airy or mousse-y than your traditional American buttercream. I doubled the recipe shown here to make a grandiose six-layer cake, then I topped it with mini m&ms. The only "complaint" I got was that there weren't enough m&ms. It's funny to witness the reactions as slices of cake are passed around and the first few bites are taken. My coworkers almost melted into their chairs in pure delight. You've got to bake this cake and see the reaction for yourself! Remember not to let the cake dry out--don't cook until a toothpick in the middle comes out clean. Instead you want moist remnants of cake on your toothpick. Also this frosting is very forgiving. Add more chocolate, cola, powdered sugar or salt as you see fit. Enjoy!
