    This cake was good....just not ....great. It wasn't nearly as chocolate-y as it seemed it should be and some of the directions/info were off. If you used her weights for filling the pans...you would get one nice cake and 1 pancake. The frosting was tasty...but a simple ganache would have been easier and had more flavor. I will make it again....it just isn't in my top 10.
