  1. Your cake was Delicious!!! Super moist and extra scrumptious with a twist of delight... Serena and I had a wonderful time shareing it with you and your family...
    Thank you

  2. Wow! This puts "Death by Chocolate" in a whole new light! Looks fantastic, Rachelle!

  3. Thank you so much, Jules!! I can hardly wait for you to try this cake!!

  4. Rachelle, Have you ever tried this as cupcakes? Looks delicious, but want to make cupcakes for child's birthday vs. cake.... today.

  5. Your recipe omits the amt of confectioner's sugar. I will guess, but thought you might like to add that bit. Looking forward to tasting this.

  6. Oh Gosh, hi AJ, I will have to add the measurements for the confectioners sugar, thank you for letting me know, it is 3 cups by the way for the frosting. I think cupcakes would be absolutely wonderful for this recipe!!
