This is really my daughter Candice's recipe. She always goes to this recipe when she feels the urge for a chocolate cake. The mayo makes this cake really moist and the icing is so creamy, not sugary sweet like the confectioners sugar types....love this cake, love the icing!!
This is a easy cake to make anytime as most everyone has the ingredients always on hand and the mayo replaces the fat and the eggs!!
