Great First Impression

I had been craving to make a chocolate cake from scratch for quite a few weeks, even after I bumped into this recipe. I waited so long to actually try it because I had baked a vanilla cake from scratch months before and I didn't like the way it turned out. Curiosity eventually took hold of me and I gave this a go. It was extremely delicious. The fact that it was the first chocolate cake I baked from scratch made me very happy. =)

The Very Best

by H. Helen , New Ringgold, PA on Jul. 2009

I bake 5-6 days a week, even for local restaurants. This cake by far, is the best chocolate cake I have ever made. My problem is, I have to go pretty far for the Choco-bake, our local stores dont carry it. But I do the drive just for this awesome cake....Glad to be a part of your website.....

Not as good as I hoped

I have a big household and usually cakes are gone in a few days. No one really liked the cake because it wasn't all that tasty.
