Chocolate Layer Cake

Jeanetta Glendenning


I found this in the Sandra Lee's semi homemade desserts. She had different recipes from stars. It is actually called "Sharon Stone's sexy sweet chocolate layer cake."
"Sexy" isn't really how I feel when I bake. LOL
I made this for my daughter's birthday and it was a big hit.
