Review This Recipe
Finally, it didn't fail!
Our 13-year-old has become frustrated trying to make a chocolate cake that did not fall apart in the pan, or that she did not overbake or underbake. Finally, this recipe worked for her. It was easy, yet yummy and she was able to decorate a chocolate cake for her little brother's fifth birthday.
