This is a basic chocolate cake . It's moist and delicious and is sturdy at the same time so this makes this recipe very versatile. This cake can be used as a sheet cake , a triple layer cake and its enough to make around 30 cupcakes depending on how you fill the cups, I have been tweaking this recipe for a while. It is like any other chocolate cake just use your favorite combo with chocolate as a frosting , The cake in the picture was for a friends birthday and it has peanut frosting , chocolate buttercream topped with chopped Reese's cups and chocolate drizzles.
