    Turn out okay .. the frosting melts very fast 😅 was a bit difficult to handle need more practice

    The cake and frosting recipes were amazing! I made cupcakes and the recipe said it would yield 18-24 cupcakes and I followed it exactly and got 40 cupcakes though (which I’m not complaining). It’s a hit with my husband and his coworkers too!

    So delicious!!! I used special dark cocoa because that’s all we had in hand and it was Devine the buttercream frosting is perfect. We have a crazy hot industrial kitchen oven so ours baked 9” pan, 20 mins at 400 and still turned out great

    Amazing!! Super moist, and just over all fantastic!
    Very light dark chocolate cake,
    This is a wonderful cake! Everything from cake to frosting is epic. I had a moment of being a professional chef with this one. Served as a birthday cake and was very well received!

    I’m guessing it’s good. Yummly won’t let me look at the instructions without rating. So I’ll come back and update after actually making the cake.
