Well, this recipe will open up a whole new world of ideas for the person who needs to watch their fat and sugar intake and their expanding waistline. You can make this cake in any flavors or combination that you desire, and enjoy every decadent bite! Who doesn't like chocolate? And the frosting is to die for! Photos and humble recipe is my own and frosting recipe is by Yota.

    Frost the cake when it is cool, or cut into small serving pieces and make a zig zag design as I did in my photo. How? You can put the frosting in a small zip lock bag and cut off the end and squeeze the bag to force the frosting through it to make a simple design. I store the cut pieces in a square container in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
