My son's school was having a bake sale and I wanted to be daring, so I made this cake. This recipe won over than any other chocolate recipes at the bake sale.

My son's friends' mothers were begging for this recipe. One mom who works at a bakery made this recipe as a wedding cake and won over the wedding party and guests.
