This cake is wonderful. I followed the recipe almost exactly, except that I used chocolate fudge cake mix because that is what I had on hand and I added a touch of cocoa powder to the batter. The ganache topping is fantastic. I ended up making the cake as 12 mini bundts instead of a giant bundt and serving individual cakelettes with fresh raspberries. It would also go nicely with strawberries, sorbet, or by itself. The raspberries or fruit aren't strictly necessary but if you get them, the raspberry flavor really goes wonderfully with the cake. The cake was extremely moist. If you refrigerate (directions suggest that you do that, presumably because of the topping) let the cakes return to room temperature before serving so that the icing becomes soft. It tastes good cold too, but it is more like chocolate candy when taken straight out of the refrigerator.
