I was craving cake. Moist, rich chocolate cake. I really liked this cake in the vanilla version so, I made the chocolate version. It was good and with the combination of the whipped frosting on top it tastes almost "light". I was hoping for a moister cake with a more intense chocolate flavor. The cake is good and I know we will eat it all but, I don't think this is my chocolate cake. I don't love the whipped frosting (or any whipped frosting) but, I wanted to try to make it again. It turned out much better this time. Much more fluffy and certainly makes more then enough to cover the cake with a nice center filling. I had the frosting 3 minutes on the stove and then whipped for 3 minutes on medium high. This frosting would be a good balance to a devils food cake.
