Chocolate celebration cake!!!!

          Congratulations to the Indian team for the fantastic win and bringing back the glory after a period of 28 years!!!!  The match was really worth watching and the team deserved the wonderful win. Every Indian is proud of you. I made this chocolate cake for celebrating this proud victory.
           I found a recipe of ginger chocolate cake in  a brownie book(forgot the name) I got from the library. I modified the recipe by omitting the ginger completely and converting it to a complete chocolate cake. I was planning to frost the cake, but the cake was quite crumbly and I found it too difficult to frost. Maybe I made quite a haste to decorate it. But I would suggest to cool the cake completely and slice it and have it without the frosting or you could have with some sweetened whipped cream or ice cream. In case you wish to frost this cake, then try placing it in the refrigerator overnight before frosting it. Anyway the cake tastes delicious and am sure you will love it.
