Hershey's "perfectly chocolate" chocolate cake

          I just adore chocolate cakes and have bookmarked a couple of recipes from various sites waiting for some opportunity to try them out.I  bought the Hershey's cocoa powder a couple of months ago.This recipe was printed on the box and it sounded really awesome.I went ahead with the recipe and we all loved it. I just realised after making this one and this cake recently,that my son is also fond of chocolate cakes. So I am sure to come up with more chocolate cake recipes.You can leave a comment about your most favourite chocolate cake and a link to its recipe.I would love to try them sometime.

      Hershey's "perfectly chocolate "chocolate frosting is recommended for the frosting. But I have used Betty crocker's ready to use chocolate frosting and  pink buttercream icing which was remaining after using it on the castle cake and chocolate celebration cake.
