This is one of the moistest cakes I have ever made. It is one of my favorites, when it comes to chocolate cake..I used a whipped cream, cream cheese frosting, I didn't want too sweet of a frosting to overpower the delicious chocolate cake.

Use whatever frosting you like. This cake will not disappoint!
