I thought this was good. My daughter said it was too fake tasting, when in reality it was too real tasting. She didn't like the bitterness of the chocolate in this "made from scratch" cake. I thought with the sweet topping and the slight bitterness of the cake balanced out quite nicely. I thought this was better after being in the refrigerator for a while as well.
