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.

Recipe Notes

Updated picture- made it again for a friend's birthday

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 thecastle cakeandchocolate celebration cake.
