I've been dying to try this cake ever since I saw this post over at Art of Dessert! So here's my version.
My nephew, who can never get a cake that is chocolaty enough, asked me to make his 20th birthday cake. I knew exactly which cake I was going to try!
I used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa instead of regular cocoa. Wow!!
I did cut one cup of cocoa out of the frosting though, since I used the dark. I was afraid it was going to be a "Death By Chocolate" cake!
Here are a few of the cupcakes:
How would I rate this recipe?
It was a more dense cake that I prefer, but the people at the party who prefer a dense cake loved it! My husband was one of them.
I'd say Peyton enjoyed his too!! Check out those chocolate eyes!!
Happy Birthday, James!!
